It is about time I send out some promo mailers. Due to my workload and family life I haven't done one since my first mailer, which was successful and landed me a few commissions. But since sending the first cards a lot has happened also to my art. Nearly a year ago, when I started going after my illustration dream, I only had one style to offer my potential clients - my digital artwork. Now I also offer watercolour and ink with mixed media. Both styles already have been used in books published or to be released next year...so shhhh ;-).
I also have an agency representing me now and helping me to get commissions. My Agency advised me to broaden my portfolio in order to get more commissions, which is the reason for my new black & white illustration below. I will have to do a few more pieces to be marketable in that area, but I enjoy it very much and think it is a nice addition to my other styles. The mock-up cover illustration also is part of portfolio work and will go into my next promo mailer (but with different text), along with some other pieces I will show you soon. So these two illustrations will be featured on one card for my next promo mailer, with the full colour illustration for the front and the b&w for the back of the card along with my contact details. I will reveal a little more about what will go into my next promo mailer as soon as the cards arrive from the printers :-)!
