Creating my illustration portfolio

Yesterday I took the train to Manhattan to meet with Carmine at Graphic Lab about printing my portfolio. When I arrived, he'd already printed one of my illustrations on two types of sample papers, which was extremely helpful, and we discussed the binding options. Because this is my first printed illustration portfolio, and I'm just not sure about the order of pages yet (or which images to keep/ditch), we decided to go with a screw post binding and a scored, heavyweight paper.

Below is a sample print, which I thought turned out pretty great. I'll post more once it's all completed.
