What do you think?
I went back and forth (and back and forth and back and forth) about what to feature on my new cards. I tried several existing illustrations. I created a new illustration.
It just wasn't working.
In 2-3 years, I don't know what I will be working on. I don't know what my portfolio will look like. This industry moves fast. It's dynamic. Fluid. You have to keep your work fresh. Ever evolving.
I don't want my cards to feel outdated next year because the illustration I chose is no longer even a part of my portfolio.
So I focused on my (married) name, which I love.
It's lyrical. Unique. Czechoslovakian.
Highlighting the letters 'Angelov,' I used the layering and shading techniques that I use in my illustrations to create the backs of the cards. I created two different options, and then couldn't decide which one I liked best--so I printed both.
