a journal of original drawings and screen prints of animals

I didn't get to Bracebridge on the weekend and it's just as well as it sounded like there was some wild storm to drive through on the way back. I do hope that everyone did well though.
Instead, I busied myself making postcards for all the correspondence that I'm anticipating with postcrossings  Above is 
Step 1. cut the postcards from 25in. x 30in. heavy stock and prepare the back with ruled lines and rubber stamps.
 Step 2. Here you can see the backs. I can't tell which stamp I like best.
Step 3. Print all my silk screened birds (well, not all of them)
Step 4. More rubber stamping.
 Step 5. Colour them in and have fun!

I had a request for a postcard from someone in New York and that's what really got me on a roll. At the same time, it's not a bad little project when you find yourself procrastinating about something else (or when you can't go on a road trip).
By the way, the background paper in these photos is from Kid Icarus in Kennsington Market, Toronto.


  1. Thank you for sharing your post cards....Wonderful idea. And of course I just had to buy a stamp....to make some too!


  2. these postcards are beautiful!
