Tad Carpenter Promotion

Tad Carpenter combines all of the previous things I liked about the they were able to be displayed, show multiple works, and leave an impression, as well as design the packaging. He creates a folder filled with prints--this allows whoever receives it to display or share its contents.

Michael Slack Promotion

Michael Slack integrates the mailer with his art...I like how he drew elements of the envelope and stylized the whole thing.

Tom Bagshaw Promotion

Tom Bagshaw does a neat fold out...kind of like a booklet in that it shows a lot of information in a small format, but I think the accordian format is good for displaying it if someone liked it enough upon receiving it. A booklet is something you can revisit, but you can revisit and display this as art.

Veronica Hebard Promotion

Veronica Hebard uses a simple card, but I like how interesting it is. I think if I were to make a card I'd want something simple and engaging like this, with only who I am and a way to contact me/see my work.

Kate Slater Promotion

Kate Slater made some promotional booklets to mail off and show off her work...I really like that idea. It's small, portable, can be revisited and displays a lot. Maybe a promotional tiny sequential booklet for myself?

Coey Kuhn

I love Coey's Silent Hill-esque themed works...

Chris Sanders

Chris Sanders created Lilo and Stitch...he's awesome.

Kentaro Miura

Kentaro Miura created Berserk, which is one of the best comic books ever. The end.

Michael Motorcycle

These are super detailed and trippy...he does really great poster designs.

Yoko d’Holbachie

These. Are. So. Cute. And really creepy...they remind me of those glow worm toys they had when I was little. Cute and a little disturbing.

Edwin Ushiro

I'm not sure if I completely understand all of his images, but those color palettes are amazing.

Audrey Kawasaki

I really love when people work on wood...especially Audrey Kawasaki. I love her delicate images...they're very soft and pretty.

Brandi Milne

I am really intrigued by Brandi Milne's art...she has chunky-legged sometimes animal-themed characters and creepy devil faces and weird japanese bubbly-eyed animals that are colored in really dark rusty horrific color schemes...I love it!
