Postcards Sent From Florida
Well I'm back from my amazing birthday/vacation to Fort Lauderdale and Key West Florida. Can honestly say that it was difficult getting on the plane heading back to NYC.
While I was in Key West and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, I brought along a stack of handmade post cards with artwork on it I created from a trip to Florida a few years ago. I had never really printed up the image before and thought it would be fun to use it as my post card image, and add some color to it while on vacation down there. I ended up sending out about 25 post cards, some to friends and family, but the majority of them went to people who had sent in responses to my "Portrait" mailart call that I had not replied back to yet. So I've included a scan of one of the post cards I did, (they're all different), and a list of mailart friends who should have already received or will be receiving a post card really soon.
If anyone is interested, I have a 5 extra cards printed up. If you're interested in receiving one send me your address, otherwise they'll end up buried in a pile in my studio and forgotten.
I also received 4 more submissions to my "Portrait" mailart call. One from Russia, France, Greece and Texas. I'll post them as soon as I have a chance to scan them.
