Business Card by Rick-Kills-Pencils Business Card by Rick-Kills-Pencils
I just changed this all around yesterday (6-15-11). The problem was, I like SO many different fonts, I could not make up my mind! Plus, I have a lot of drawings I could put on the back, and cannot make up my mind, which is why I just print my own :D:D

I recently decided to do more commission drawings! If you're interested, check out this link for my drawing guidelines [link]

Thanks!
your pencil buddy ~ Rick (DrPencil.com)

"I like SO many different fonts..." Rick just a little advice, pick 2 typefaces and use only them. Like your illustrations, less is more, so keep it simple with the typefaces.
If you want to put more of your illustrations, I would ask. How are you going to use this piece? Will it be posted on boards? Or will it be handed out like a flyer? If it's posted on a board, don't bother putting anything on the back as no one will see them and you can save the time and ink. If you put more of your work I would add mostly real people (less celebrity). Sure it's okay to use celebrity illustrations to show your level of capability and attention to detail, but this way people can see more of a real application and associate it with their own life.

If I were marketing you, I would point out reasons people would want a custom portrait, ie; unique gift giving, memorabilia (as in death of a loved one), wedding.... I would also show mounted pieces and how they're displayed in real life. Just a few things.

I know that you do a fabulous job illustrating people, how are you with animals. The pet illustration market is hot. I mean who wouldn't want a personalized illustration of their beloved pet?

I like it! :) As you've done, make sure the portraits you choose are as recognisable as possible! If people don't know who the subjects are, then how can they compare...even if the drawings are technically amazing (which they are! :P)...Looks great! :) Hopefully you'll get some business heh :D
