Not everyone wants to be where the people are.
Swag here!: REDBUBBLE Goth Mermaid
A little batty? Who me?
For SCBWI NY conference next month, I’ve decided to theme my portfolio with spooky art. It’s what I’m known for and what I like drawing best. Here’s the cover image.
I have the book divided into sections: Baby Book, Picture Book, Chapter Book, and a skull and crossbones tab where I’ve sampled Mother Goth Rhymes art. I’m taking some pleasure in knowing mine will be the only portfolio featuring murderous cats.
I’m heading to New York next month for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators conference, and instead of my usual art promo postcard, I can actually promote a book this year! Yay! I just ordered these from GotPrint.com.
The front is a sneak peek from the book. I’m printing in color to capture the sepia tones.
And here’s the back in greyscale. It includes a hand-drawn name (branding ftw!) and all my vital contact info, as well as another poem sample and shout-out for Mother Goth Rhymes.
The card is 5″x7″ — the maximum size allowed size allowed for the Illustrator Showcase. I ordered 250 which is plenty for the conference and should leave some left over to mail out later.
New York, here I come!
I’ve been busy creating new Mother Goth Rhymes artwork and expanding existing pieces into full 2-page spreads. It’s a lot of work in a short amount of time, but I’m living my dream and drawing what I love! Bats and graveyards and zombies, oh my!
