Doing a commission

When I first start a commission, I use a plastic portfolio such 
as the red one you see here.  I put the person's name on it
written on a piece of tape (I haven't done it here!).  Then I place
every bit of data and photos and sketches in it as I work on the
piece.  That way the bits and pieces do not get lost and I can
immediately locate what I need to do the work, as well as to go
over things with the client as the work proceeds.

I own several of these portfolios.  As soon as the work is done,
I remove the tape and put the things that were in it in a file folder
should I ever need to refer to it in the future.
