nice stuff, man. Did you reach out to The Creative Group yet. It's a good way to make some connections in the graphics field and also put some experience under your belt and money your pocket. They also have recruitment services. Shoot me a PM if you want the contact info.

Ive been an Art Director for 13 years now and I have never worn a suit and tie. Hell I wear shorts and sneakers to work in the summer. One my legs is tattooed from knee to ankle. Both arms to the elbows. Except when i have client meetings. Then it's khakis and a nice shirt. My creative director even wears jeans and sneakers to work and rides a ducati. Now on an interview dress appropriately. As a creative you NEVER wear a suit and tie. You will look way to stuffy. Creative directors look for your creativity to show not just in your portfolio but in YOU. Im not saying dress like a slob, but a stylish sport jacket and pants would work. NO TIE.

The career you chose isn't the corporate world. Many people think advertising is but the creative end of it absolutely isn't. You are going to be in the creative department, your job will be to come up with looks that are original and cutting edge. Hard to do it when that tie and suit is constricting you. You create for a living, you are not going to be selling insurance.

For you own personal site i would wear a nice shirt and like the others say shave.
Goodluck man.
