Business Cards

Here's what I'm thinking of doing. Opinions would be GREATLY appreciated! I'm pretty sold on the drawing (what describes my work better than a witch clutching a small girl to her breast in the middle of the woods??) Plus its drawn with pencil on vellum, which is now my favorite thing to draw on. I love how messy it gets!
Anyways, here's some versions Im playing with.....let me know what you think pretty pleassssseeee.






Text? No text? Pretty color bar? Flipped??

Once I figure out this design I can start working on the back.

I like the last one with your name. From a business perspective, it associates your name more quickly with your work. Then again, they can just flip the card over if they want to find your name. Guess I'm not much help, am I?

No no, you are! I wasn't sure if I should have my name on the front or not, since I've seen artists cards both way. But I (and a few people I've spoke too) agree with you that the last one is the strongest. Thanks!

Another vote for the last one, though personally I'd flip the image itself, keeping the text on the left side.

Text.

I think that using one with the witch on the left and the girl on the right looks a bit better.

I think the yellow bar on the left edge with your name is a really nice addition but think about making the yellow bar's opacity maybe 60% or so.

The font face you use should be the same one used on your web site so maybe we should sit down in the next day or two and talk about that.

No text! I like the full bleed with the text on the back. The text interrupts your work!

I also like no text. you should design the back and the front at once.
