Nuts and Bolts: Dedicate yourself to the Details

August 26, 2016


Nuts & Bolts – Dedicate yourself to the Details
Dedicate yourself to the details.  Strive for quality.  Create a design and work it a few different ways to see what looks best.  The same goes for a verse.  Let the words flow and take it a few different ways, then boil it down to one that resonates best with the image and occasion.


The majority of people do not hit the nail on the head on the first try.  You should let concepts and designs marinate.  Give them ample time and attention to be the best that they can be.  Get feedback from others as well.  Sometimes we’re too close or married to it to be objective.


Here are some wonderful examples of re-worked cards by artists dedicated to improvement, marketability and attention to detail:

Don’t settle on your first concept.  Inspect it like you may sell it by the thousands … because you just might!



The difference is made in the details!
