This is Darcy, the new portfolio mascot! Darcy represents my multi-genre skills, including writing, editing, art, and social media. I created little Darcy using mixed traditional and digital media (pencil, technical pen, Adobe Illustrator, respectively). Darcy is holding a tablet pen and a USB mouse to represent digital media, a quill and ink bottle for traditional media and writing/editing, and a hashtag and @ symbol to represent social media. I picked an octopus because of their problem-solving abilities and implied multitasking skills via the eight appendages (also because they’re stinkin’ cute!).
