I love to go to SCBWI conferences, but I don't like the sticker nametags I get at local conferences. I figure since I'm an illustrator I should jazz it up a bit. Plus, if you're like me, you might need a conversation starter . . . illustrated nametags are perfect for that.
I recently updated my logo to reflect my current style, so I needed to make a new nametag. Here is a step-by-step tutorial, so you can make one too.
UPDATE: I wore my nametag during the entire LA SCBWI Conference and I wanted to let you know that this was one of my better ideas ever. So many people recognized me and came to talk to me because of it. It was also the perfect way to get my art out there in a quick way. I highly recommend making one for yourself.
