post it

I was feeling a bit crafty the other day and decided to create some postcards using a few of my frankie covergirl illustrations. One came out with completely different colours and another turned out a lot lighter than on screen, so next time I should probably experiment with the brightness/contrast and all those settings before I print them. Anyway, I’ve sent one off already so here’s hoping it reaches its destination safe and sound.

    these are amazing! what a great idea to turn your illustrations into post cards! i'm feeling the need to be "crafty" again, you should certainly sell these! i'm sure they'll fly like hot cakes! even turn them into cards (xmas cards maybe? if you add some holly or a candy cane somewhere hehe)

    @everyone: thanks for the kind feedback

    @everyone who thinks I should sell these: I guess I really should take the hint!

    @Blackswan: I was playing around with an Xmas card idea like that – maybe a Santa's little helper?

    @Lianne: I haven't studied it at all (only in highschool, but I doubt that counts). For me it's more of a free time, "fun" thing to do. I studied Communications at uni, and while the idea of studying visual arts/fine arts is appealing – I'm not sure I can handle going back to school haha

    @Amie: I wish! That would be a dream gig.
