Above photograph: inking faces – for a new series of illustrations for art prints & cards.
While yesterday – February the 14th – was a day set aside to send messages of love and friendship to our near and dear. It may also serve as a reminder to pause and make note of other days – other moments of celebration that occur throughout the year.
If you love sending and receiving snail mail – keep a set of blank art cards or postcards in your top drawer – for those personal hand written notes and messages any day. Whether they end up archived as personal history in a shoe box, pinned on a cork board, or popped in a frame as art to enjoy every day – postcard love is real.
So take a little time-out from the hurly burly rush of daily life – to pencil or pen a few thoughtful words; write a letter; or indeed let the illustration on a card say it all and simply sign your name.
In a world of the ephemeral, illustrated art cards sent with hand written messages and letters are to cherish.
