Popular Penguin Artist Invites New Opportunities for Retailers

(January 24, 2011)   Designer and well-known artist Jen Goode is pleased to announce the licensing debut of her popular art and illustration at the Craft & Hobby Association (CHA) 2011 Winter Conference & Trade Show in Los Angeles, California January 29 – February 1, 2011. Goode’s whimsical art has gained a wide fan base through a variety of online venues, and her popularity continues to grow.  Although she has created a number of different characters and designs, her most recognized piece is a cartoon penguin that has secured a world-wide following, making appearances on products, in videos and at various events around the globe.

Goode’s work will be on display throughout the CHA Winter Show, the world’s oldest and largest craft and hobby industry trade show. Manufacturers, retailers, and members of the press can view Goode’s work first hand in booth #5043 of the License & Design section of the CHA Winter Show, or in the Designer Showcase (Table #1). In addition, she is moderating a round table discussion on affiliate marketing, and contributing an original art piece as part of The Group Canvas Project silent auction to help raise funds for the Kids in Need Foundation. Goode’s extensive catalog of designs, branded under the names Jen Goode, JGoode Designs and Penguinality, will also be available to companies looking for unique, playful art to include with their own product offerings.

“My daily life is my inspiration.” Goode says. “Creating smiley hamburgers, silly ice cream cones or another penguin personality is what I love most. Being able to show this quirky view of the world to spark a smile or encourage creativity in others is what motivates me. When I discovered the potential to expand my audience through art licensing while working with manufacturers to develop new products, I couldn’t wait to jump in head first!”
