I completely understand your frustration. I've lost some jobs this year
because either they googled my blog (facetime.blogspot.com) or they
freaked that I'm in the Reserves. At any rate, it's sad when extraneous
issues conflict with hiring processes.
Re: your decision to destroy the village in order to save it, perhaps you
could put your other pages up. Then you could have a page for design where
you show before & after--but only use a section of the originals--that is,
perhaps there are thumbnails that you enlarge only a portion of, and show
perhaps an arm & elbow in the original and the same area post-PhotoShop
