Animals take the NYC subway
Taking a break from addressing promotional postcards (yes! I have compiled a list)
my thoughts turned to animals coming & going on the subway.
The best thing to keep close by at all times
is a little Moleskine notebook. If you haven't tried one, you're missing out, really.
The paper is super smooth, perfect for sketching with a pen.
Back to mailings. This round is predominantly for children's book publishers.
I'm planning to stay positive until one of my characters breaks out,
however long it takes. The prospect of someone calling me out of the blue
after receiving a postcard is a fantasy I hold onto dearly. The idea of one or two cards
making it onto the bulletin board of a few art directors is enough to keep me going!
For anyone who wants to brush up on their skills, gain some fresh insight or
sustain motivation, I highly recommend the Continuing Education program
at SVA. I recently completed another class there and it's
always a rich and rewarding experience,
well, except for that one time ;)
Hope you have a fabulous weekend, just a day a way :)
