Halloween is this week and I have no idea where the month of October went. It’s supposed to rain all day here on Thursday so I might have to come up with an alternative trick-or-treat experience for my super hero and “Pink Lady.” I think a movie and popcorn will be in there somewhere! So, with Halloween upon us, to celebrate, I’m excited to be hosting another giveaway with That’s My Folio! It’s a great website for artists to promote their work. When I did a giveaway with them in 2011, I interviewed the brainchild-ren (is that a word?), Patrick & Lanette on why they stared it and what type of advertising they do for the site. You can check it out here.

The prizes are:

  • Three $50 dollar Barnes & Noble gift cards

  • A one year subscription to Thats My Folio

To be eligible to win, all you just have to do ONE of the following:

  • Leave a comment on this blog post, telling me one of your favorite Halloween movies or candy (mine is Bettlejuice & snickers). Be sure your comment links back to your website so others can see your great work.

  • Copy this retweet on your Twitter status RT @HolliConger enter to win a 1yr subscription to @thatsmyfolio http://tinyurl.com/m6jts9j
  • Take a picture of your home halloween display or a piece of your own halloween themed art, post it to your instagram account and tag it with #thatsmyfoliocontest @holliconger

This is a great prize for any illustrator looking to promote their work. I will pick the winners this Friday, November 1st. Good luck everyone and thanks for spreading the word!

Podcast Interview
December 1st, 2009

I was recently interviewed by Thomas James of Escape From Illustration Island about how I promote my work. The podcast is now available so take a listen. Hopefully you’ll get some ideas on how to market yourself as an illustrator. After my Surtex trip to NYC I became more aware of my southern accent so if you hear some “twang” in there, feel free to giggle. It apparently amuses those not from the south :)

And in other news, next year I will be relaunching Living The Creative Dream. After a year of examining what I’ve done (I’ve even written a book on marketing for illustrators – but no takers yet) and what my original plan was to do with the site – I’ve decided to stick with what I know best so I’m shifting the focus more on helping other illustrators with their marketing. So stay tuned for that.
