munch on art


i was just finishing this exact post about an hour ago, when wham bam thank you ma'm, all a wash. the disappearing act of the day! i have been debating all day, mulling over whether or not i should go ahead and post my one and only entry into the postcard swaporama. finally i decided to go ahead and show n tell.

firstly and foremostly i am completely inspired by zak smith's illustration of thomas pynchon's gravity's rainbow. geez! whatamouthful...yum! so if you've ever caught up with it all, you'll notice i've stolen, not so shamefully though, the top right hand corner drawing. i mean i mean i mean, i drew it free hand and totally achieved a more original color thingy, but the windmill reflection in the eye is a direct _____. so sue me, or be praised zak!!! everything else is well mine, really! and the yellow bird is exactly like the lovely ornament that kate gave to me for christmas. i have slides of all the beautiful christmas tree's, mine having been all birds this year. i am so pleased with how my postcard came out. i should have sewn though and i should have finished all four designs. and i think i will but on a rainy day. i have put the original of 'der hund' in my etsy shop, so if you feel so inclined to pur-chase the piece and make it yours, your welcome!

i am having a real busy day, and so that's it...

Love that you used that snowflake paper. It's one of my faves. I love how this came out Cat! You rule! I love the stamp. It was so hard to come up with a dog. I'll have to post one of mine. Dude. good job! I hope you scan it or something so I can get a pseudo copy sometime! More cards baby.
