Whoa! First blog post EV-ah. Considering how non-verbal I am, this is quite the endeavor. And really, I’m sure people have better things to do than to read my ramblings. Instead, let me post some photos to entertain you, with a brief explanation.
Last week on LinkedIn, I accidentally friend-requested everyone I have ever emailed. Ever. Emailed. This had some varied repercussions. On the downside, I had inadvertently requested professional contact with people that I had long ago deleted from facebook, bought things from on craigslist, ex-boyfriends I swore I’d never speak to again, and people I generally just really didn’t want to request as a business contact. On the upside, I heard from some great clients that I hadn’t contacted in years. One of them, after receiving my email via LinkedIn, remembered that he had promised to mail me one of the toys he made. He had hired me several years ago to make illustrations for use on the packaging of these dinosaur toys. The large multi-paneled packaging ended up a small hang tag, but it’s nice anyway.
This tag is never coming off
I’m actually pretty pleased with how my illustration was used in this instance. For a few other examples of the original artwork sold to puppetoys, go to www.susangyoung.com and click on illustrations, or just click HERE! This particular character was loosely based on my nephew, Steven Young.
