Are you freelance? One of my friends was telling me she has to set down with a list and pick through trendy subjects when designing scrapbook lines. She does work for a major company. I would have block if I did that. Luckily, I don't design for crafting. I never will. Been asked and said NO emphatically. I will stick with my gaming. Good fit for me. No, llama's will be drawn in my next project, lol. I actually don't think I could draw a llama. He would be a dark llama holding a sword or something. Probably the only way I could make that work.

That would be an interesting concept of a think tank for stamp illustrators. I love stamping because of the variety. One stamp company I can have lovely traditional while the other I can have something crazy and trendy. I am glad stamp illustrator's do what they want to do without limits. For me I want a variety of stamps in different subjects. I seriously doubt I would ever stamp if it was all trendy. That's where my stickers come in. Trust me I want a llama stamp more than anything but I also want ocean scene's and feathers and lots of other subjects.

Are there think tanks in the paper crafting industry at all? I only thought the companies set down with design trends and Pantone's color of the year and came up with concepts for their newer lines. I should say scrapbooking does that and maybe some of the larger stamp companies do this.
