PI Portraits started as a simple business idea in college then evolved into a more profitable business in university. The business idea was to create a customized and personalized portrait for individuals, a bit like a subway sandwich. The process involved receiving a photograph, illustrating, scanning and then coloring through computer software to create fantastic final product. It proved to be quite popular and helped cover my rental cost. Each portrait was a labor of love (which did have repercussions on my actual course work at the time, but was worth it). PI Portrait is still functioning business, though its target demographic is no longer just students, but businesses, organizations and individuals globally.
