I’ve reached that stage in my writing career where business cards come in handy. Going to cons, sending contracts, mailing in hard copies of subs — these are but a few of the opportunities we have to share our professional details. So I put some together a few months ago, simple things that were meant to look like the pages of a book, but when they came back from the printer’s I was disappointed. They just weren’t quite what I’d had in mind… so I ditched them, because, well, ew.
Enter: Best Friend of the Highest Order (played by Angela Slatter)
Designer Extraordinare (played by David Pollitt)
Artist of Wondrous Wonders (played by Kathleen Jennings)
Plot: BF conspires with DE and AWW to secretly create a set of fabulous business cards the likes of which I could not imagine. Deals were struck, magic was worked, and beauty was brought to my mailbox in card form.
And behold! CLOCKWORK OWLS!!! Fonts fashioned out of twigs!!! Quotes from mine own stories!!!
A treeful of mechanical owls graces the front of each card, and there are also various quotes from my stories (collect them all!) on each card. On the back, the awesome barn owl is featured.
Thank you, thank you thank, dear Brain, Badger, and La Belle Artiste!
Oh goody those came out rather well. I wasn’t sure if the peeking owls would be cut off or not.
They came out beautifully! The peeking owls are perfectly cropped. 😀
I have to do something similar, but my idea is to have leaves, because of my blog is with a very flora-related theme. All is so interesting. You have an amazing BF. 🙂
Leaves would be gorgeous. And, yes, I have wonderful friends (I am really spoiled!) 🙂
Lovely, absolutely lovely, Dr Hannett!
Aren’t they just? I am a lucky girl!
Very nice indeed. Do owls have a special significance for you?
