Self-Branding Prototyping.

I've spent the last few days on my Professional Practise modules, which involves essentially, self branding myself and producing business cards, CV's... et cetera. I decided to really focus, and mock up several prototypes in different formats (final yet to be decided. Landscape? Portrait? SQUARE? #DesignerProblems) printing on really nice textured paper. What a difference the paper stock makes to your work. I'm still on the prototyping stage but I was quite pleased with the amount of mock-ups I've achieved so far. The only thing is, my little self-portrait illustration has a slight flaw. I DON'T HAVE A MUSHROOM HAIR CUT (anymore)... Maybe I should go to extremes and get my hair cut for the degree show. Okay, slightly extreme. But, in all honesty; I've tried drawing it with long hair and it just doesn't look right. Mushroom hair, it is.
