Day 26- Art every day...and illustration Friday on Tuesday
The Illustration Friday theme this week is "I spy" so here is my interpretation. I am obsessed with concrete evidence of spring it seems. And butterflies are just artistic icons that I love to use in my work.
Related to my everyday art theme, I started thinking about how I might utilize all of these digital collages I've made this month. I fear that I was not so forward-thinking that some of them are not even saved in a high resolution format, but for those that were, I may create some greeting cards, postcards, etc. Vistaprint is running a wonderful special this month, as they often do, for "free" postcards, business cards, etc. I say "free" in quotes because there are some nominal charges for shipping and uploading of artwork, but as a graphic artist for more than 20 years, I can tell you that it's a DEAL. For $25, I designed a new full color business card (250 qty), a full color postcard of one of my digital collages this month (100 qty), and a free custom, self-inking stamp. That includes the shipping. In this day and age, that's FREE!!!!
