"Your portfolio stinks!"

Back in January 1991, Nike was having an open portfolio review.  Excited, I mounted chromes on boards, worked with an art director on creating a unique “Nike” case that laced up, sent it out FedEx and crossed my fingers.

The below letter is the response.  Now imagine this was at a time I was considering quitting my job and heading into photography full time.  The look on my face must have been something to see as I read this note.  Well the rubber cement used to make the case gassed out in the box and well, Mallory has a great sense of humor.

Thanks for the laughs every time I spring clean and come across this letter.
