I have officially started work on my third PrettyGreenBullet exhibition. And a fixture in both previous PGB exhibitions were my postcards. I can’t imagine this one without. I’ve missed doing these. And normally when I miss a certain medium I always start off on a high. Today, I completed four postcards and started work on […]
I love loose-leaf paper. My triplicate book accidentally ripped down the middle and I took advantage of that little hiccup by tearing the rest of it apart. The drawn-on pages anyway.
