My Business Cards! are my new business cards. I attempted to make them like little works of art and made them 2 sided. I got them printed on and I have to say they did a fantastic job. I left room on the back of the card to write information like price quotes, phone #'s or anything really. I should have my first set of self promo postcards soon..I can't wait to mail em out!

Illustration Friday - Under The Sea

well I missed a really great topic last week with "robot" but I'm trying to make up for that lost opportunity with what I think is a decent illustration for a semi lame topic (Under The Sea? seriously, enough water themed topics). I wish that I could find the time to participate every week, but I've decided that If I'm going to get more illustration work, I have to start doing alot more self promotion, I'm supposed to get my first set of professional business cards soon and I've ordered my first batch of self-promo post cards. I'm also compiling a mailing list of people, publishers and businesses that I think could use illustration work like mine. Along with this I'm in the process of leaving my current full time newspaper graphic design job for a much better paying job at one of their competitors. So basically things have been crazy & I've been having a hard time finding time for alot of things.

I am making time though to go see Mission Impossible 3 this weekend. If you can put Tom Cruise's crazy personal life aside. I've heard that if you want to go see a really great spy flik with alot of great action and cool stunts that actually has a great story. Go see this movie!!! If you were dissipointed by the first two and want to see it done right...Go see this movie!!! This time of year is a special time for me because it marks the beginning of the summertime big budget blockbuster movie. There are so many movies coming out in the next few months that it's making my head spin. Last year I only saw a couple of the movies that I wanted to see in the theatre, but this year, I swore to myself that I would see all the movies that I'm interested in. It will take focus but I think I can do it. Alright enough of me dorking out! Go see some great movies this summer!!!

I'll post some pics of my new business cards and postcards as soon as I get em. Hope everyone has a great week. Comments are more than welcome!
