The topic over at Illustration Friday this week is Whiskers.
An online retailer called Oopsy Daisy is interested in licensing my Giraffe and my Elephant (which you can see here), but they want a more complete set and have asked for two additional jungle animals plus some other specific pieces for decorating a nursery or a kid's bedroom. I was working on this anyway-- how lovely that it also fits in with the Whiskers theme.
I can't decide which colors are better though? The Giraffe and the Elephant are on an orange background, but I thought it might be fun to do the other two animals on a different color. What do you think?
I also got my holiday postcards back from the printer! To market myself and my artwork, I am sending postcards to a long list of agents and art directors that work with children's books. I took a chance on a cheap online printer (as a graphic designer, I know better) and they did an okay job. I don't think I will use them again, but the cards will work this time around. Pictures coming soon!
