Great feedback in class yesterday! Thank you all!
This week I will be focusing on the story of my save-worthy self promo booklet.
Here's my first draft! I think I'll try to sketch out some of these ideas on a dummy book.
Hello, my name is Rachel! (Illustration of me holding my illustration tools)
I live in Boyertown Pennsylvania- (flip down) these are my 3 kids! (hanging off of me)
I’ve been drawing since I was 3 (drawing I made when I was 3)
This is my 3 year old drawing with me (Hunter drawing on the walls/dog behind me)
I don’t ignore my kids to do what I love, (sign ADORABLE HELL, mom drawing with clutter, noise and Hunter running past)
I'm an attachment parent, I make my kids do what I love with me :) (All kids/mom drawing together, Hunter drawing on himself)
I love being a mom!
Illustration is my double rainbow!!
Style of booklet inspiration.....
1. Molly Snee: an illustrator who was used as a great example of self-promo by Charles Hively in our webinar. Her piece is a great example of a narrative and personal self promo booklet.
2. Lucy Scott: illustrator and author of Doodle Diary of a New Mom: An Illustrated Journey Through One Mommy’s First Year. I found a lot of inspiration for humorous yet simple illustrations about motherhood and multitasking.
