Now that July is over and the postcard is in the mail, I figured I should post about it.
The postcard swap was organized by Dawn Diamantopoulos over on Google+ and I decided to take part. Basically, she assigned names to each artist who joined up and the task was to create an original piece of art in your own style and send it off to your assigned recipient. You aren’t necessarily creating it for that person specifically, more like creating it on your own and they are the lucky person to get it.
So here’s my postcard and the stages I went through to come up with this.
I’ve also uploaded this to my deviantArt account if anyone wants to see it in a much larger size. Overall I’m pleased with how this turned out but I think I need to do a better job of defining the text next time. And there will be a next time. Dawn was talking about organizing another swap, this time with signups in December and mailing out in January 2014. I can’t wait!
