I am mostly confused about where I am typically heading in my promo design. I found a great website, recommended by another artist, that is a definite starter for me.
Frank Flothmann - is an artist from Berlin and has an interesting way of presenting his illustrations with a poster. The cool part is that you have all these different points of view and can fold it in several different ways.
Chet Phillips - has a simple approach but its elegance makes it subtle and effective.
Laura Galbraith - She has a very hand crafted approach that could be interesting
Michael Slack - I love the texture with single characters on the cover. A possible idea.
Frances Castle - I LOVE THE COASTER. That could be so interesting to do something so creative and give the client something they can use! Although I might need to think about a way to keep the coaster from fading and tearing when it gets wet. Hmmm.
I think there are some great ideas to work with here.
