Exhibitor Portfolio

Hi there,

My name is Melquea Smith and I am a furry and fantasy illustrator. If you haven’t seen in my digital and traditional portfolio, I specialize in adorable animal characters with sweet stories designed to make you smile.

Here is my list of products for retail at artist alleys, tradeshows, and events.

Buttons

1” and 1.5”. I might branch into larger buttons!

Positive affirmations is what I specialize in. “I am Black, I am Beautiful” or “I Matter”, all something I would have wanted when I was younger. Now I get to spread that joy and have people wear good vibes with PRIDE!

Button Packs

These button packs correspond with their original painting. I broke down each painting into the central theme I wanted to convey and worked accordingly. “Radiance” (center) illustrates the story of a young panther who overcame fragile self-esteem and learned to love herself. Curves and all.

Prints

A part of my “I Am” series.

More positive affirmation quotes tied into their respective paintings. Every piece has a different moral with a different cozy feeling attached to it. These prints are small, personal ways to have that extra boost of positivity in one’s life.

Custom Journals

I will sell two variations. Small kraft notebooks hand-inked with black, white and gold ink, adorned with a golden spine. Individually packaged with love.

The next one will be printed, and embellished with gold ink. Also individually packaged with love.

Grab Bags

This will contain a healthy amount of products from my current stock as well as stock made specifically for those grab bags. I am still in the research phase on how to make them bigger and better!

Separated into three categories

Baby Bear – set of buttons

Momma Bear – set of buttons, a print, and a commission

and Papa Bear – an original painting, 2 prints, a custom notebook and set of buttons

Original Paintings

These babies are going to need their forever home, so I will be also using the paintings as a way to draw attention as well as find them to a wall where they will be loved.

Plans for the Future

I plan on expanding, and now that I have a successful event under my belt, I’m ready to do the next best thing. I have a tendency for practical items and things I would use. So stationary, pens and pencils, journals, and notebooks are on my radar.

I want to get into smaller items such as stickers that can be paired with my journals. Bookmarks done in a very unconventional way to pair with my journals.

I am also getting into jewelry and I am formulating plans and blueprints on getting that done.

My Display

I love creating and designing environments. I want to be set apart from the rest. Therefore my display is a unconventional and builds the PrettyKitty brand.

Thank you for your time, and I can’t wait to be a part of your event.
