    I know it is supposed to be a wolf's tail, but it looks like a fox's tail. (probably because of the context of that background rust color)

    I would caution against having a colored...

    I thought I'd do some artwork for the front of my portfolio

    What do you think?

    I like it! Esp. the "do not eat" part. Are those really your eyes?

        Cool! I've got green eyes too and people are always asking "are you're eyes really that color?"

          Looks cool. Good work.

          Here's a little tweak. Line the copy at the botton, with the 'r' in 'portfolio'. If you must.

            I like the layout James especially the type treatment (not too sure if you need your name horizontally top left??

            personally though I would let the work inside your portfolio do the talking not the cover.

                Right, I've fixed the text block lining up with the 'r' (I noticed that as soon as I posted it!) I've also adjusted the kerning, and made the cross lines of the t and f line up with the x height on the r.

                My reason for doing a cover page is partly to show off some more artistic work to compliment the corporate work that I've got inside.

                  Since I am not in the job market, I don't deal much with the portfolio issue, but I will say I like that. No critique, just a vote.
