I had a super time drawing caricatures at a wedding reception recently at the Holiday Inn next to Wright State University near Dayton… The couple had been married for a while but never had time for their reception so it was belated and much enjoyed. Super people having a terrific time.
I did not take any photos there, like an idiot, but for the sake of discussion, here is a sketch of my wife and myself from WAY back there. Hey, it’s a bride and groom image, right?
So after finishing up at the reception, I stopped by the front desk at the Holiday Inn and gave the young lady there some of my flyers, seen here.
And now because of those simple little flyers I have been invited back to the Holiday Inn to draw at an event for their staff. How cool is that?
Especially since I get those little BW promo flyers free now; they were part of the wasted paper trimmed off my sketch pads — until not long ago, when we began having these images placed there and getting those padded, too.
I hand the little pads out liberally every chance I get. Recently that resulted in getting to draw at a cool restaurant in a repeat booking, and a LOT of calls from our info being posted in unusual places because of our little flyers.
SO — share your world, gang. Promote where you can and get the word out, eh? Ya never know… Good luck!
