I am the sort of person who likes things to be perfect. I know they can't be, but I can't help who I am either.
So last night I got the new issue of Teddy Bear & Friends. I had done my second ad in it for the year. Now when I did the first ad I was working on an old computer. The ad didn't look as good as I had hoped, but it was ok.
After that ad I got a beautiful new computer. Now I knew the monitor displayed things brighter and lighter. But I guess I didn't realize exactly how much. This second ad looked good on my monitor. The colors were good. Sadly when the magazine arrived I was horrified to discover the bear is so dark you can barely tell what it is. The writing blends in. It was extremely frustrating and disheartening. Especially since ads don't come exactly cheap.
I guess I will give the next issue another shot, I hope this next ad comes out much better than this one did. R said I am my own worst critic, and while he may be right...when something is just plain bad, it is. Sigh~
