Post Cards

They're here! My first official postcard samples have arrived. The edges are a bit raw, but I'm not fussed. I used Vistaprint and went with their standard paper and a gray-scale backside. As far as I'm concerned (and I've been known to be picky) the color and saturation look pretty much like the files I uploaded. 

A warning: Vistaprint is a little wacky. You have only two size options; 5.47"x 4.21" or  8.52"x 5.47". Oh, you already have a design in a standard 5"x 7"? Fuhgeddaboudit. They at Vistaprint go in for no such tomfoolery. Also, printing quantities are 100, 250, 500, 1000, 1500 or any multiple of said options. So, your agent specifically requested 350? You'll have to upload your image(s) twice and purchase one set of 100 and one set of 250. In the end, I would say the image quality for the price is well worth the fanegalin' if you ain't rollin' in the green. 

A big Thank You! to my super SIL Meghan Molumby for her graphic design advice.

Pop! Snakes

Last time, I posted about the Pop! Owls and my original intent to do a series. Well, I got all pumped-up over the idea again and lit a little fire under my own tush. Here's the next installment! I have several more ideas. Let's see if I can maintain my own interest.

I went ahead and put this one up on society6 as well. You can find it: HERE

Pop! I'm new on society6

I originally did this piece for my sister. I hear it's hanging merrily in her kitchen in Oregon. I had plans for a whole series depicting a variety of creatures "popping" into life. If only the pictures popped as effortlessly into existence as this little owl did. 

The hubby, Brandon Keehner has been very successful selling his work on society6. It has something to do with the type of work he does, the type of shoppers on society6, and also with his general awesome-ness. I've always felt that most of my work was too illustrative and child-oriented to be very well received on the site, but I recently got a wild hare up my---well, I just decided to try it out.
