For those old to this blog you will know what the post blog part is all about and for those new to the blog Welcome, Hello! Hey there! Hi! thanks for taking that leap and pressing that button!

OK! SO! ‘The Post Blog’ category is all about me designing a limited edition of  only 20 postcards, 4 designs, each design is sent out to 5 different people around the world. They all follow a theme of ‘What If..!’  Which is about me in a sense, re-imagining existing beings/things and discovering what if in reality it was different. Nice huh!?  The 4 designs at the top belong to the 3rd and recent batch. Now with them, all that is left to do is get them printed, ‘Still!? But you said that ages ago!’I know, I hear that!.. I’m so behind. I will print them soon!! Then write a random message on the back, and have them fly through the postal system once more! The second batch is the middle and the first one is the last. I think it’s safe to say for me I like to think they’re getting better 😉 Well I appreciate all your likes and comments! Feel free to follow again twitter – @daltonsart or Instagram for process shots of future work @daltonsart

What If…? Budgies Rap!


Yo! My 3rd batch of ‘What If…?’ postcards is now complete with this last image! Can I get a –> Whoop!! Whoop!! I need to get them printed out still before I start sending them out to strangers. So in the meantime why not Kick backRelax – Let the rapping budgie show you a few beats! Oh and why not follow me on twitter or Instagram to get updates! and painting process!

What If…?? Camels had Humps of Ice!


Imagine that! What if camels did have humps of ice!? The 4th and silliest idea in the what if batch!

Really I have no idea how this would work. Maybe you touch the humps and the ice cubes would pop out? Maybe they burp them out? or perhaps they fart a cube out? Either way their humps are obviously going to be a shade of blue.


What If…?? Chimps wear it best!


Meet Chesney!! The one and only chimp who knows how to rock those fake glasses! You know! Those massive glasses the size of a human face. That doesn’t benefit the eyesite!   Oh you work it Chesney!

OH! What If this time…


Fellow Dudes and Dudettes! I was going on a break from doing another ‘What If..?‘ postcard theme, because of a funny thing called life! But have decided against it. Instead, just expect these post slllooowwwly. That’s right! Sllllloooooooooooowly!!

‘But we want more now.’ I hear you cry! Well, have NO fear. I tested this phrase out a while ago, ’twas a pleasing reaction. PresentingWhat If…? Zebras are just horses who escaped from prison?

Postcard update!

SO!! Towards the end of 2012, I managed to send out most of my postcards. YAY ME! This blog post is for all my special followers, so you! Yes you! and I guess myself! as evidence, that all the hours, effort,  paint, paper, blood, sweat, and all that jazz!  put in does prove to have results. I have 6 more left to write a personalised message on, draw a random address on the postcrossing site and send off flying through the postal system one last time!! BUT!! For the cards that have already been sent out to a bunch of extremely random lucky strangers!!  have expressed lovely words that I really appreciate and below are just a few…..

Hurray! GB-374142 to Finland has arrived!   ”Hi Annie! Terve & привет (privet)!  It was such a delight to receive your quirky, but stunning postcard! Thanks a lot for it! This imperturbable rabbit with human feet definitely put a broad smile on my face!”

Well…There we have it!! I love post ha!! 😀

Part of the postcrossing experience, is that for every postcard you send, you will receive one back from another random person anywhere in the world. As you can imagine, I have a bit of a wonderful collection growing! so I have uploaded, not all! but some of my favourites (click for details)….You’re not obliged to look, but if you do I hope you enjoy!!  🙂

Now all that is left to do, is write a random message on the back, and have them fly through the postal system once more!
