Ha! Now that's funny.
I also work for and with myself most of the time these days. I'm a real pain in the ass.
However, for many years I was a lead scenic artist for corporate theater companies, TV shows and regional theaters in California. One of the worst guys I ever hired walked in with the coolest portfolio I've ever seen. Wow - he worked on "Aliens". Wow - he worked on "Star Wars". Wasn't until I hired him, discovered right away he didn't know s**t about s**t, still gave him a chance until he screwed up a major project with his ineptitude, and then finally fired him that I thought back and realized, wait a minute, in every picture of that portfolio he was simply posing with a set piece near the back of a truck. Turns out - he didn't have anything to do with creating or painting those things, he was just the guy that loaded and unloaded them out of the truck!! In other words: He took his picture with other people's work, put those pics together into a portfolio and passed himself off as this great scenic artist when really he was just a truck driver/mover. Oh, but that's not all - a couple years later I was working on a TV show when the same guy showed up with the same portfolio looking for a job - except he's updated his portfolio with pics of the projects he'd screwed up for ME, claiming he'd designed, painted and done them all himself. Wow indeed, eh? Unfortunately for him, he didn't recognize me until after he'd produced his BS portfolio and I quite literally kicked his ass out of the shop.
