Postcard Swap Part 1

My friend Marguerite Bryant and I participated in a postcard swap hosted by Kat Sloma at www.cateyestudio.com. We sent 5 postcards designed by us to Kat, and in return, she mailed us back 5 postcards from people we have never met. She also added one more that was a postcard made from one of her own photos. There is going to be a blog hop where we post the postcards we received from the other participants. Marguerite, however, sent me the 5 postcards she made since there was little likelihood we'd receive others' postcards.

M, as her friends often call her, loves to create art while listening to jazz. She hand drew 5 different people renowned in the jazz world and made them into postcards. Wow! I love her drawings, and wanted you to see them, too. I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I did.

In order of their appearance, they are Ella Fitzgerald, Thelonious Monk, Nina Simone, Chet Baker and Billie Holiday. Aren't these fun?!


  1. Wonderful expressive drawings.

  2. these are truly terrific. Again, thank you for your creative postcard. I've only received 4 so far but I'm sure the other 2 will be along shortly. I think your friend's jazz themed drawings are really unique.

  3. Thanks for posting these Bill! I can't believe I am still doing a drawing everyday! I have quite a little gallery of art happening in my hallway at this point. I am running out of places to hang them all!
