It’s done! It’s finally done! All* postcards have been finished, addressed, scanned, and sent! (And there was much rejoicing!)
Because I didn’t think to scan them before addressing them, and because I am the world’s. Slowest. Photoshop. User. It took about a thousand years (read: a week) to splice the fronts and backs together and erase the addresses. But it’s done!
Regular posting to resume again shortly.
Cat Lynch, Spring 2012 Postcard Collective, watercolor
*Almost all- When I first scanned the cards I had thirty files. An email, two computers, and some photoshop dickery later, I had twenty eight files…? Someday soon, after my eyes uncross I’ll hunt down and post the rest.
Postcard Collective - Winter 2012. Cat Lynch.
I don’t know what I’m doing at this moment, or what the weather’s like (because I’m writing this from the fuuuuutuuuure), but, barring some complication, I’m there! And (hopefully) it’s grand.
But you’re here for the free thing, aren’t you. Here’s the deal: There’s six (seven?) more postcards to come while I’m gone. Comment on any one of them- You could post a link to a map of someplace you’ve been, you could tell me a story about a vacation you went on that was swell, or maybe wasn’t swell, an adventure you had while writing a postcard once. It could be a completely fictional limeric about a trip you don’t even want to take- And for each comment you’ll get your name put into a Completely Scientific Name-Drawing Hat. Post trip, I’ll draw a name (scientifically), and that name will get their own postcard IN THE MAIL.
So enjoy the rest, Can’t wait to read/see/experience your response, Weather’s lovely, Wish you were here.
ready to be sealed and sent
New things up under ‘Guts.’
Oh, also, now there’s a section called Guts! As well as a much cleaner Work section. (if only my real work area were so organized. And free of cat hair).
Also finally started (as in took more action than just thinking and doodling) a drawing/performance/painting…thing…that’s been swirling around my brain since the beginning of summer. I won’t go into details yet, other than to say it involves five other artists, the idea of drawing as a blueprint for action and the US postal service.
Other than mail and stichery, my days have been filled mostly with work, running, reading a long-awaited book and systematically devouring the Grandview Public Library’s dvd collection (no cable + lots of time spent sewing = finally catching up on my ‘to-watch’ list).
Lots of exciting things on the horizon though. The fella moves tuesday and friday I start training as a docent for the Wex. Oh and it’s (almost) officially fall.
And I have squash.
