Another dog, another dollar…
Dollar or pounds, I’m hoping my next postcard design will cheer everyone up (at the very least). As mentioned in an earlier post, I’m hoping to post out by Royal Mail, snail-mail, quarterly postcards. This one won’t be going out until November, but as my favourite online postcard maker has kindly offered a discount at the moment, I’ve rushed this one out, so its hot off the press!
Rags to Riches
The illustration is taken from a HUGE book I illustrated for Eleanor Curtain Publishing a few years ago now. When I say huge, it was a sort of poster-size, extra large book. Goodness knows how you’re meant to hold it up and read it to a room of eager children. He was a lovely character to create and illustrate, and I have always really enjoyed illustrating animals. It has been hand-drawn, hand-painted and digitally painted too. I enjoyed splattering paint around immensely, even if it did result in a major clear up operation – post splatter!
A ‘postie’ theme
I seem to be developing a theme for these cards too. With each one there will be a character on the address side, holding a stamped envelope or parcel. It’s just my little, gentle joke. At the top of this post is the front and below is the back of the postcard.
