Mailbox joy three times over

The first postcards from the “Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap” arrived. And I got the first three all at once! So, my mailbox was more than happy with the mailman today.
Well, here are the treasures:

#1 from Kelly Ishmael – mindingmynest.com
What a beautiful photograph! I also looked at the others on her site “Minding My Nest”, she takes such gorgeous photographs of flowers. Thank you so much for liberating your art, Kelly!

#2 from Snap – twistylane.blogspot.com
“be happy” and I SO am (!) because I’m the lucky recipient of this great postcard 😉 Thanks, Snap, for sharing it in this years swap!

#3 from Mandy Kopelke – mandykopelke.com
The colors! I can’t stop marvelling at these bright and vivid colors. Thank you Mandy for liberating it!

Your eyes are huge!

No, my eyes aren’t really huge but what I choose as image for my “Liberate Your Art” postcards this year has something to do with huge eyed cartoon figures. To be exact: Manga characters. Yes, I’ve been – or still am (?) – back to “that phase“. As I now have a roommate who is big into all things Japanese and a so-called “cosplayer“, I guess it was just a matter of time until the Manga-fever got me again. Here a small study of “Manga Fever” based on many subejcts. Not. Just one: Me.

WARNING!: Manga Fever is not a real disease. Just in case 🙂

Well, and this is my little “Chibi Pilot” postcard that I’m liberating in Kat’s postcard swap this year:

I hope the recipients will enjoy it 🙂

For a fresh (re)start

It’s been a looooo…ng time – and I can’t promise that it won’t happen again. For a while I was convinced I wouldn’t even make it back at all but then the “Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap 2013” rolled around. That changed my mind and now I hope it will help me get back into the flow of postcrossing, mail-arti-ing and – of course – blogging 🙂

Sonow, I’m right in the middle of this years “Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap” (organized by the wonderful Kat Sloma from Kat Eye Studio). Swap day was the 6th of April and I’m waiting to find the first cards in my mailbox. Uhh…, I’m so excited!

And then today, I gathered all the Mail Art and Postcrossing cards I hadn’t posted yet and added them to the galleries. It’s not that much but you are welcome to take a look. There are only a few images missing that I haven’t been able to unearth yet. Maybe I’ll find them as I go along reorganizing all my blogging files (or what’s left of them after the big “laptop-hit-the-floor-and-smashed-it’s-poor-little-brains-day“).

Tomorrow (I hope) I’ll show you the art I liberated in the swap this year.

P.S. My laptop got a brand new brain aka hard-drive and is up and running again.  My roommate is now lovingly calling it “Zombie” because it was raised from the dead. I guess the condemned really do live longer after all.
