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…?? Camels had Humps of Ice!

CameICE2

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!

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!”

Hurray!  GB-374147 to United States of America has arrived!  “Thank you for this awesome card Annie !!!   I am actually very proud to own this special card. Thank you very very much ! Merci :)”

Hurray! GB-374146 to the Netherlands has arrived!  Hello Annie, thanks so much – it’s a lovely card and your own design! Really beautiful. Good luck with your drawings, we need people like you in the world big time! F.”

Hurray! GB-374141 to Germany has arrived!  “Dear Annie! I was so glad as I received your postcard! I couldn’t believe that it is you own design! It is wonderful and I’m happy that I am one of five persons who will ever get it! 🙂  Tank you very much!” 🙂 🙂 🙂

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!

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.

Comments From the Crossers!!!

Just to prove that this post blog thing is working. I have copied over some comments from the previous postblog of the owners of my postcards who live around the world. 🙂

Angela [Visitor] 173.188.57.25 angs1991@gmail.com
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

I got one, too! I received the “What if pigeons were in charge?” I love it. Creative and unique. Thanks!
Marcie08 [Visitor] 62.178.174.133 andi_marburg@gmx.at

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??

Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to announce that after a little mishap with printing, my postcards are finished! I signed up to post crossing site received my addresses and my postcards are as I type sitting inside a post-box resting there little sides amongst some other letters!!  Are they a success? Will they reach the unfamiliar persons? One can only hope. In the meantime it is a waiting game, a game I shall happily play. 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….

Presenting What If…Sharks had arms?  What If…Cats had Talons?   What If…Pigeons were in Charge?   What If…Rats had Wings?
