Since Surtex is rapidly approaching (May 17th in NYC), I thought I'd post one of my banners that is going to be hung in the booth. I'm sharing our booth with three other talented artists, and we each get two panels to show our art. Can't tell you how complex it is to design your own panel and then also have it work with all the other panels in the booth. Each artist was allowed an "everyday" themed panel and a "winter holiday" panel. The panels are 38" wide and 85" tall. Always fun to see your artwork blown up really large! If you look closely at my panel you will see characters that I've posted in earlier blogs during their various stages of development. The panels are being printed and will be rolled up and shipped to New York, making our step up fairly easy. The panels are merely attention grabbers for the buyers to stop and look at our books full of designs available for licensing.....which is what I'm madly working on now!
