Business Cards and promo block

Children's Book Illustration Promotions, Experimental, In my Brain then on to Paper, Life, On my Desk, Work in Progress

I’ve been spending quite a bit of time working on some new business cards and post cards to mail out this fall.  The biggest slow down was my laptop, after five years the battery started acting up.  I now have my new desktop and things are working a lot better, I really like having a work space in the living room where I can sit with the little man while I work.

I have a couple layouts for my cards that I like but I guess I’m having a hard time deciding on one.

I took what I liked from these thumbnails to create my business cards.

Cardlayout

This was the front and back I originally liked and started working on, the energy in this first version was lost however when I did some further work on it.

I like the image, but not for my card.  I guess I’m looking for an image that better defines me as an illustrator.  But really until I get something mailed out it doesn’t matter how well defined my designs are, because the point is to get my name and info to the publishers.  So I really just need to make a decision get them printed and send it out.  period.

Farm Animals and Birthdays

Life, The Child, Vector Drawing

For my sons first birthday (Yay!  Happy Birthday Aaron!) we had the party at his cousins farm house, and so the decorations I made had a cute farm animal theme.

It was a good exercise in drawing some cute characters in illustrator as well.  There are a couple that I really like and I think I will continue to develop them.

It was a fun day and even the cupcakes I made turned out to look okay.  Not quite what I wanted but it could have been worse.

It is once again wedding season and when I read the theme for illustration friday this week my first thought was of getting married.

These two little critters are off on their way to start their life adventure together!
