I bought a copy of the Mail Me Art - Short & Sweet book about a year ago. The "Mail Me Art" project is co-ordinated by Darren Di Lieto, the brains behind The Little Chimp Society and Hire An Illustrator, and involves illustrators the world over posting postcards they've illustrated which will then be published in book form. Short & Sweet was the third such Mail Me Art project, and the current one is "Open All Hours" - not that the illustration has to be on that theme at all.
I've been meaning to get round to submitting an image ever since, but I was a bit daunted by the one-shot nature of it - each submission must be on an official card, and must be hand drawn or painted rather than printed. Not much room for mistakes! I finally committed myself to it this week though, and the above image is the result.
Below are the cover of the MMA Short & Sweet book, and the required photo of my postcard being posted. Here's hoping it arrives in a reasonable state!
