Inktober 2021 – Week 3

It’s week 3 of Inktober and I am drawing on postcards every day and sending them out into the world via post.

I have put out a few tweets asking people if they wanted a postcard, and now I have a little shortlist of volunteer recipients. Some of them I knew already, some of them I didn’t. It adds a different dimension when I know someone specific is expecting a postcard and a drawing. I like to think we are all in it for fun and in the end it’s about an interesting experience.

If you haven’t seen the first two weeks, have a peek:
