Penguins for Postcrossing

I joined Post Crossing and the first mail assignment was for a woman in Germany, who loved penguin images. I took that as a prompt to design a new postcard--here's the result.

Mini-painting from class with Sherry Thornton

Created in class with Sherri Thornton, who is  teaching, again, after a break during which she worked full-time as a graphic artist. I'd wanted to take classes with her since 2003, when I saw work by her students.  We all had a great time--the techniques are simply fun!

Monoline Cursive on envelope

Envelope sent earlier this month. I'm enjoying  practicing monoline cursive, as learned with Anne Elser.

Month of Letters

 For the second year in a row, I've been participating in Month of Letters. I've collected postcards and greeting cards during my travels and am now endeavoring to work through many of those, in addition to the postcards that I design, as well as the fold notes I've created as homework for Anne Elser's Monolinear Lettering class. So far, I've sent out more than one piece of mail per day and I aim to maintain that, even after February ends.
