Last week I created business cards that I hope would make Patrick Bateman squirm with jealousy…just squirm, that’s all… and then he would leave me alone and totally not murder me while listening to Huey Lewis and the News.
I created a simple icon of myself, for myself. It speaks to my skills in cartooning, graphic design and the subtle expression speaks to my humour and sense of curiosity.
I have rolled out this icon online adding it to my WordPress account, LinkedIn, Facebook etc. and now on a business card. The card is a heavy GSM and the circle image has a slick gloss finish. I decided the back only needed my name and contact details as I have branched out far further than just illustration and design. I believe if I’ve handed someone this card they will remember my face quite easily along with the reason why I handed them the card.
I had the cards printed through vistaprint.com and am very happy with the result. So long as I maintain a slick haircut and this beard I shouldn’t need to update these cards for a while.
So, is it your birthday coming up? Why not get a personalised comic book cover why not! You will have to ask your friends to contact me with some pictures of yourself and you will first have to be a really good friend to deserve something this cool.
The design featured above is a hand painted design I did for my friend Nick’s Christmas present. He always wanted to see what it would look like if a non-fictional character tried to blast his fictional ass away! He also asked if I could find someone with a similar last name just to make it interesting.
Or for those of you that just want a very specific gift to give, you could get this for your very deserving, very non-fictional friend. Just contact me and we can talk shop.
