The Postcard Show

This is a series of postcards I finished this week for The Postcard Show: Volume 3 at Hot Art Wet City Gallery running this Nov.14-16th.

Since I’m really enjoying the combination of embroidery, fabric and drawing, I decided to use these materials once more. I also had a revelation last week that most of my drawings seem to be about animals or food. Rather than fighting this impulse, I’ve decided to RUN with it.

So the subject of this postcard series is FOOD. And specifically, some of my favourite WHEAT products: waffles, sprinkle donuts, and toast with jam. Fortunately, even those of you who have to abstain from wheat can happily indulge in these drawings. They are gluten-free, I promise.

The intention of the Postcard Show is to create “a narrative through accessible and affordable art” And how it works is, “each postcard is made available to the public through a silent auction with an affordable minimum bid and a buyout bid in order to entice the audience to get involved in the business of art collecting” (copied from the website). All of the art in this auction will be original works of art. And if you are free for the final night of bidding, I would definitely recommend you get in on the action! The finale is on Nov.16th from 7pm-midnight.

I had a dream a couple months ago that I was sleeping inside a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It’s not often that I’ll draw illustrations from dreams, but this one was so vivid and bizarre that I had to make something based on it. This final illustration is hand-drawn and embroidered into watercolor paper and then tinted digitally.

The theme on the Illustration Friday  blog is “Sweet” this week, so it I’ve posted it on there as well.
