First off, did you check out the new Copper Road that went up yesterday?
Since I will be tabling at Furry Weekend Atlanta soon, it's probably a good idea for me to have things at my table to sell! What you see here are sketches for possible 1.5" Precocious buttons! (Click the image for a larger version.) I'd love to get some feedback on this. I can like 'em just fine, but I'm not the one buying them. What do you like/want? Could I make Precocious buttons non-Precocious readers would want? (If you're reading this on the homepage, click the title of the news item to reach the sketch blog and comment.)
I'm looking at having five designs with me for FWA. Two buttons that seem obvious for me are the sleeping Tiff "exceedingly cute" one and the "I like me" Jacob design. They are cute and have messages everyone can get behind. It's a bit harder for Bud and Autumn. The gags they're associated with tend to be too specific or too complex to fit in the tiny space of a button. Autumn is a cutie, though, so maybe a button of her being cute is enough. For Bud, I first tried out the "Rule #4" design, which I may keep tweaking. I also tried out a face shot with the tag, "I am Precocious." Next, I played with the idea of a group shot for a promotional button - but would they come out too small? I might have to play around with that idea more to see if I can use the space more effectively. Finally, considering Tiffany wears a smiley button, giving a shout out to that might be a good idea. A generic smiley is too generic, so I chose to go with the ":3" cat smile.
