In 2019, Good Hair Cards will expand its retail presence into the global market and expand its product categories beyond greeting cards. I'm excited about working with my overseas contacts as I produce my products
It's been a fun journey, but Good Hair Cards was no overnight success. Creating the Good Hair Cards illustration was a 21-year-journey. I worked very hard to draw the images on my cards and even harder to sell them.
So I laugh when people ask me if I am rich or what program I used to create my illustrations. First, I'm not rich (yet) and no computer program draws my artwork. I learned to draw the old fashion way with pencils and crayons long before there were any digital drawing programs. The computer might make drawing somewhat easier for a non-drawer (tracing), but one still needs to learn how to draw well to compete in the marketplace.
All my illustrations are originals, but like most artists, I look for inspiration everywhere. I look at hairstyles magazines and celebrities hairstyles to draw the hairstyles on my models. The faces on my drawings, however, are not real; any resemblance to any living person is a coincidence. I needed to draw semi-realistic faces because the hairstyles would not right on a cartoon face. I'm excited about the direction Good Hair Cards is going. The website will be redesigned in late spring. And I'm looking forward to throwing a big party real soon.
