Advanced Photoshop Magazine

This illustration shows a plant / flower as a visual metaphor for a successful portfolio that attracts customers (bees). The flowers are screens and the plant grows on an island as a reference to an exceptional portfolio. The forest shows the (overcrowded) market for Freelance Designers. The socket is a reference to digital design.
