From the Studio - Australian Postcard swap

As a member of the Australian Etsy Team, Dust, I took part in a fun postcard swap.
All participants were paired off, and each person had to send to their swap partner,
a postcard (bought or made) featuring their part of Australia. I had the pleasure of
being paired up with the lovely and extraordinary captain of the Dust Team, Melanie
Cook. She hails from Brisbane, and I from Adelaide.
So our postcards to each other were a small snapshot of our surrounds. Melanie chose
a photographic montage from her own personal shots (above), and I chose to sketch
and digitally colourise some local places around my suburb. I'll add these as soon as the
swap has been completed.

All in all, this was a fun challenge and my first team swap. I look forward to
doing more throughout the year :)
