Horse - mixed media - Andre Petterson
I have pretty well established that I love using vintage postcards in my art. They figure prominently in quite a few pieces for the 2011 Project. One of my favorite things about them is all the old, stylized fonts that were used in the postcards and on the covers of the postcard booklets. Two years ago I worked on a project making my own, handmade postcard booklets. One of the best parts was the excuse to recreate the stylized lettering in the style of the old postcards from 70 or so years ago.
HH: I was always fascinated with postcards coming from strange corners of the world to my little post box. I later collected them for sometime, but now they are in a trunk that I will perhaps use for collages one day. Or just a trip down memory lane, perhaps.
