Hallmark Card Winner. 4×4 Baby Stroller

Filed under: Uncategorized — scottnelson @ 2:28 pm

After spending way too much time entering the Hallmark Card contest, I’d like to report that I finally won. “Yay!”  What’s interesting though is the  monster truck baby stroller design that won is so two dimensional and basic that it doesn’t come across as my usual style.  This got me thinking that I might need to rethink how I draw things so I’m relevant in an ever-changing market.  In my opinion the car salesman concept  on the right is drawn better and a bit funnier. Yet it wasn’t acknowledged by the judges at all. Since the card market itself has been so tough lately, this win has oddly caused more confusion in my card creating ability then confidence.
