Weirdly enough, this month and next month I will be making some public appearances supporting this project. On April 19th I'll be at Pete's Candy Store in Brooklyn giving a brief talk with a slideshow as part of their Open City Dialogues series. Then on Saturday April 24th and and Sunday April 25th I'll have a table at S.P.A.C.E. in Columbus. Finally on May 13th I'll be giving a very brief presentation at Pecha Kucha Columbus.
For years, I was able to avoid having to actively promote my art since it was purely personal and private, but it seems as if the time has finally come and I can delay promoting it no longer. I've decided to print up some postcards with one of my illustrations on the front and some information about my web site and the project on the back to give out at some of these events. Good friend Tom Williams has already been kind enough to share a wealth of technical information on the best ways to create, format, and print promo postcards. Now I just need to decide on which image to use, and that's where I want your help.
I want the front of the card to have an image that is really striking yet still a good representation of the project as a whole. This is tough because I am using so many different media and found paper and even different styles. My main concern is that someone might pick up the postcard, really like the image on the front, visit the site and be disappointed when the rest of the art looks nothing like they expected.
So I've narrowed it down to 5 pieces that I think would look great in full color on the front of a full bleed postcard. Please take a quick look and, in the comments, vote for which one you think is most appropriate or, if you think another image not listed here is better, please let me know that. You can comment anonymously as well. Also, if you'd like one, send me an email with your mailing address and I'll send you one or two when they're done.
