A new Promocard

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 :-)!




Etsy Shop Opening - Illustration for Print Poll & Giveaway

I wanted to do this for quite a while now, but never found the time to open my own Etsy shop. Today, however, I just did it! For now there are four original watercolor illustrations listed and two sets of cards. One being a collection of four cards of my illustrations and the a other a set of 5 Christmas greeting cards with a German text inside.
I hope to create more art and items soon to fill my shop with lots of goodies. In order to make items you would want to buy, I decided to do a kind of poll and ask you which of my illustration you would love to buy as a print. So please have a look around and leave a comment below to help me sort this. The illustration named the most will be made into a high quality art print and I will give away one signed print to one person chosen randomly, who commented either here or on facebook. So what would be your choice?

Time again to announce another winner of another giveaway. The winner of the "Wee Granny's Magic Bag" giveaway is .... Michaela Heimlich!
I will get in touch with you right away Michaela, so I can ship your little parcel as soon as possible. Thanks to everyone else who participated! Unfortunately the next giveaway will probably have to wait til my next book is released in January 2012. Currently I am doing roughs for a new book and working away on some Christmas Cards. I will tell you more about it, as soon as I can reveal bits and pieces of it.
