My Existing Work
Originally, I chose to just be known as Lawrence on this site and keep this project separate from my other writing. However, as promised on day 62 in ‘A Fifty Full Monty’, I decided I would tell all.
There isn’t much to tell – there are no big surprises or secrets – but there is certainly a lot to share.
If you would like to browse a small collection of my favorite works as well as links to some of my other blogging projects over the years, you can visit www.larrypattisonjr.com. This is my portfolio site. It’s a work in progress, but it’s there nonetheless.
When I was applying for jobs at animation studios during a trip to California in my mid-twenties, one company called me a few weeks later and told me I should consider putting my portfolio online.
All these years later, back in 2021, I decided I should do this for my artwork. Maybe one day I’ll figure out what to do with piles of diaries and hand-written writing logs.
