2009 was the first year I tried self-printing a promotional booklet to mail out. Years ago I printed one copy of a collection of my Toy Portraits through Asuka Book, but the cost was so high I never printed any others (around $50 for a soft cover).
This year, I got around to making a low-page full color promo book through Blurb. It only cost about 1/5th to produce and I ordered a handful to give to magazines and other more commercial and editorial outlets.
Below is what the 2009 booklet consists of.
My buddy Dave Seah and I have been doing a podcast for a while now. I think we’re around 11 episodes or so, and the previous cover art graphic we were using was cobbled together with old grainy cellphone images. Someone commented to Dave that the image of me didn’t look as friendly or approachable as I am in real life, so we took some time this week to get a few new images, and Dave came up with this fantastic logo for it. It doesn’t really cover what we talk about (making a living in the creative arts) but the design covers the geek-factor just enough to get the point across. I think.

Saturday October 16th 2010 was the last Portable Portrait workshop of the year. With a full year of workshops held here at the studio behind me, I thought I’d write up a end-of-season post covering my thoughts.
