Birth of my business card:


An image of my 'business card'. I thought and thought about it, should it have a minimalistic look, maybe subtly Asian...?? My conclusion: make it to represent my love of colors, whimsy, fantasy and fun. The banner was hand created with various papers and own printing. The crow/raven was copied and slightly altered from an original small art piece, to which I attached a computer altered lantern. I then scanned the collage and finished altering it on the computer. The 'chains' around the words were a wonderful surprise, something I hadn't even been going for. They are computer stamps that, when downsized, gave the look of chains ---which I use a lot of in my art. The stars and swirls represent fantasy and joy ( including the lantern ). Ravens and crows are my fav. birds ( can be quite whimsical and stay mates for life ). I'm quite pleased with how it all came together and look forward to sharing these cards with others.
