When preparing my projects for my Portfolio show, the idea was always in the back of my mind to have mock-ups, giveaways and swag on my table so people could pick them up, page through them, and get a better visual for what I was showing in my book.
I knew it would be important to have mock-ups printed of the brochures, catalogs and flyers in my book.
I also wanted to make sure I had several copies of the illustrated maps featured in my book.
I printed my forest illustrations as postcards for people to take with them and use.
This past summer, I spent some time illustrating more maps that didn’t make it into my final book, so I had a few extra print-outs on hand to share.
I had my butterfly infographic poster (measuring 11″ x 17″) framed and resting on a tabletop easel, along with my butterfly die-cut and activity book. That was a fun attraction too!
Please do not print any images of this artwork. It is available for purchase.
Lastly, I had a pile of different stickers made with all the different illustrations and surface patterns I had done for projects in my book. Stickers are fun to put on a water bottle, a laptop cover, and notebook covers.
I also made up three swatch books with fabric samples of three surface pattern collections I’ve done. Those swatch books are still on my table in the art gallery, so I don’t have pictures of them, other than the picture of my entire table display. Those were also another nice attraction because I had never shown them to anyone at school before, and no one else had anything like that in their portfolio or on their table.
You may have guessed that I had a lot of fun pulling all this together!
Thanks for stopping by.
