Hi Gail, I use Behance and always put my name on my work, usually in the
bottom corner. I personally don't like big watermarks on my work, but
that's just my preference. My agency won't use watermarks of any kind in
their artist's online portfolios. I'm not a fan, but it's an unfortunate
reality of my representation.
