My Business is Cards

SO! There I was Friday afternoon… hours away from a gallery opening (my first one! …awwww, he’s growing up) and needing some kind of a business card… so what do I do? Shoot! I made me some business cards! Check ’em out, go on! Go on!

Business Cards 1

Classy little suckers, aren’t they? Website on the inside, the death pose on the outside…

Is that coreycanvas thing in the corner really necessary?

How did I do it, you ask? Well I’ll tell you!

I had to cut down some 8.5 x 11 card stock, score it along the back, fold it… carve a lino block with my website… here’s where it gets tricky…

The next step was to wreck two of them cause a stencil I had of the death pose dino from a while back really, really didn’t work. So at the very last minute I carved a new dino out of a lino block (another failed Dracula illustration put to good use).

Long story short, I stole the idea of a lino block business card from my dear brother (credit where credit is due). But I put a pretty severe Corey twist on it, if you know what I mean.

Not bad for three hours of work. I made exactly 50. The coolest part is that I can always carve another block or two and add some more information for future business carding.
