This year, I was determined to get all my marketing materials for the conference done WAAAAAAY ahead of time so I wouldn't have to worry about paying for rush delivery and whatnot. This plan coincided nicely with a three-week nature photography roadtrip my hubby had planned in June. What was initially intended as a en plein aire painting experience for me turned into a shut-in sweatshop in which I pounded out a picture book story, sketches, and 5 finished paintings, PLUS drawings for new portfolio pieces, all done from inside a series of hotel rooms of varying quality. No distractions, since hubby was out photographing nature with his photography buddies. Here are a few of the images I'll be using for my promo materials:
I cropped these for the business card (I'll add a pic of the final product when it arrives):
That last one was inspired by this picture I took from a tiny plane we flew in Idaho:
As for the postcard, what started out like this:
I call it "Feast in the Forest," and I'm pretty happy with how the lighting turned out, as it's a skill I've been working on for quite some time.
