My little one is ill at the moment, so I’ve placed plans on hold to get some of my personal letters out in the mail. I did manage to meet my mail commitments for February 4th and 5th–thanks to swap-bot and Postcrossing. Three postcards–one an advertising card–hit the “mail stream” the last two days.
And here’s the advertising card I sent out:
That was yesterday.
Today, I sent a “Happy Animal” postcard to a Postcrosser from Kiev (Ukraine). I’d forgotten all about our private swap, until I received a postcard from her (see below). Eek! “Feja” likes animals and Winnie-the-Pooh, so I thought she’d appreciate a cute animal.
According to the bio provided, Junzo Terada is an Osaka-based artist. He designs and illustrates a wide variety of products that can be found in the Comes Mart store he owns in Osaka, Japan. The Happy Animal Time collection of 30 different postcards is published by Chronicle Books.
Here’s the awesome card “Feja” sent to me:
I “heart” this postcard, but I really can’t tell you much about it because everything is written in Russian or Ukrainian. You can find more of the artist’s work at Smugasta or at Smugasta’s Live Journal. Even if you can’t read a word, the artist provides a lot interesting, amusing, quirky and fun illustrations for your visual pleasure.
That’s it for now! See you tomorrow–maybe!
