What if…? theme continues.

ImageJust another random thought that has been progressed into a sketch!! yeeeah! So I’m slowly getting on with another batch of ‘what if…?’ designed postcards, may take a little longer than the last as I want to produce the artwork at a bigger scale. Well anyway here we have ‘What if…Tigers had antlers?’ Idea in initial stages. I wont post the finished painting until I have all four completed however watch this space for more sketches… OOOhhh Yeaaaah!! 🙂

Did you get my previous comment? The spam-stopping nazi crazy words goofed me up – they are sometimes impossible, aren’t they? Maybe I need bifocals.
I received the cute sharks today in the mail and LOVE them! Thank you thank you! I think if sharks had arms they would totally give out big hugs to potential human prey instead of big bites. Or maybe they’d be able to hold on better as they gnaw away?
Go visit the cute sharks on my blog too!!
Have fun, Angie from Ohio, USA

BAAACCCK!!!

Right so finished re posting everythink from blog.co.uk and will now start to post new ideas on here! so were all up to date all with it now?? good, lets continue. Ok so confession time! I never really finished sending the last parts of ‘what if’ batch last year, so will be doing that now!! yes i will!! other than recieving more lovely postcards from people, (from sending the postcards i had sent last year) i also recieved a request for a private swap! a lovely lady asked for one of my postcards, i was really surprised and shocked by this very nice comment that i decided to send her two of the ones she liked SO! Zipovil on postcrossing you are the only person who will own more than one from the ‘what if ‘ batch! hope they treat you well! re- activated my account and and in the process of writing out some more….. maybe its time for a new theme…??

Pigeons Did Fly!

My ‘What if… pigeons were in charge?’ flew through the postal system and landed in Craig’s hands! Thanks for your comment!! Craig happens to blog as well Go check it out dudes!! http://cawindt.blogspot.com/

Post is great!

Soooooooo this postcrossing stuff seems to be working! as well as me sending my designs out there to strangers around the world, I also recieve postcards from…welll… strangers! cool huh! So far I have amazing postcards from Kenita in the Nederlands who is married and has 2 boys, Peter from Helsinki, who drives the bus from the railway station to the airport! maybe one day I will bump into him… what will be the odds??! Another one from Wenqi who lives in China and I received a Lake Garda postcard from Haly Andrega just this morning. All complete strangers, going about there lives I probably will never speak to or hear from again, but that is why this postcrossing is such a buzz! It takes little effort to just say ‘hello, how are you?’ and by sending something in the post that has been hand written, has a real stamp from somewhere half way across the world…I guess if anything will get you out of your own bubble for a while.

(Wow! just re-read that, i am such a nerd! 😀 )

The Cards Have Landed Hoorah!!

My plan is now in action! and so after travelling 6,188 km! my ‘What if …Sharks had arms?’ Postcard has arrived in the U S of A! and into the arms of one lucky lady named Angela! woohooo! she also blogs go check out her amazing stock of postcards at http://postcardplayground.blogspot.com/

My ‘what if… cats had talons? made it to Ireland!! Thanks Sekmes!It is so great to hear peoples thoughts and actually engaging with the questions. cats with talond would definatley be strange! or if sharks had arms maybe they would give big hugs instead of bites?? ALSO I recieved my very first postcard from Roosendaal in the Nederlands!! Go Me!!  Already thinking about a next theme. Huuummm!!??

This is Awesome!!  2 down 3 more to go! then i can send a second batch of ‘What if…’ out into the big wide world.

Till next time!

And for those of you who have a burning desire to see what the finished designs are like, well brace yourselves I have posted them below….

What If….

So I’ve been thinking about a theme, a limited edition of 20 postcards, 4 designs, each design is sent out to 5 different people around the world. Nice huh!? and so… my first theme shall be ‘What if…’ I often have weird and wonderful thoughts, although the people around me would say ‘strange’ I often tire of being considered the odd one but my mouth sometimes runs away with me.(maybe being a bit mad as an artist helps, right? after all most great art wasn’t produced without the artist turning a little senile, hum although fear not my future correspondents I can certainly confirm I will not be cutting my ear off and posting that!..anyways I think a lot and when I observe things that I see or things people do or say, I imagine what it would be like if things were different, for example the saying ‘pigeons are just rats with wings.’ SO!  what if rats actually had wings? what would they look like?. As a result I am embracing my peculiarity and my own way I am bringing to life and sharing my bizarre with you!… you lucky thing you! I’ve got a few sketches done and when I am happy I shall use my trusty watercolours to paint the rare images that shall soon grace The Post Blog.

Till next time…
