Hi everyone! Fellow illustrator Kristi Valiant (who has an adorable book about dancing penguins coming out later this year; everyone go preorder it) has a very informative blog post on promotional postcards for illustrators (you know, the ones you make and send out to art directors several times a yaer hoping that someone says "YES! I love his/her work and have the perfect project for this art style!") In any case, I wanted to share this post with you, because it is a great resourse for illustrators who are promoting themselves, their artwork, or their upcoming books.

My agency puts out a quarterly catalog featuring all of the artists in our group, and each catalog has a theme. The second catalog of the year has the theme "Family", and I decided to take a slightly darker view of the subject than would be "typical" for the children's market, but is nonetheless very real for many children.
MB Artists, the amazing artist agency that I belong to, has released a promotional catalog with the theme "Fairy Tales". Each artist contributed a piece of artwork with that theme. There are so many great illustrations!
