I just want to say thank you to everyone for the warm welcome. I am really jazzed because this group has already motivated me. I spent all morning working on an illustration for IF "resolve". I thought it was a good word for me, because I am resolved to put together a strong portfolio. I will post the picture tomorrow. I am a huge procrastinator, so I was hoping that this critique group would light a fire you know where.
Here is an etching that I did last fall. The black line is the actual etching and the yellow and pink are paints that I loosely painted onto the plate before printing it. I am not planning on printing anymore anytime soon, so this image is an "as is" one for now. I am very attached to it at this point in time, and I was thinking of using it as my postcard. What do you all think? Does it work? I want something memorable that will make someone want to call me back so that I can show my more thorough portfolio, but I don't want to make a mistake with the postcard choice. Is it too edgy? Would love to hear what you all think. Thank you!
It is a picture of my daughter sucking on her Bee (blanket).
