Postcards!

Found this in my pigeon hole this morning, means my postcards are here!

Postcard envelope

This is great project by the Print Society at Iowa State University, their 12th Annual postcard exchange.

Each participant prints an edition of 13 postcard sized prints, which are sent individually to the university. They then pool all of the prints and send you 12 prints back chosen at random, keeping one for their collection and an exhibition later in 2012.

Here are the stats; there were 397 participants, from 38 states in the US and 8 different countries. I was one of 13 who submitted work from the UK.

This years theme was disguise. I sent one of my recent lithographs, a still from a Super 8 film showing a WWI tank in motion, it was inspired by the abstract designs of  dazzle camouflage employed during WWI.

Freeze no.1 – Photo-lithograph from Super 8 Negative – 2012
