'Nuther Handdrawn Postcard...

17 comments
Since we're on the theme of hand drawn post cards, here's another one I did just recently.

A friend of mine here at work, Omar Smith, recently went to Mexico. So, I managed to talk him into sending me a card from there. And, in return, I sent him this one.

It's ink and marker.

Hey Marcelo,

Happy New Year and thanks for stopping by. Nice to know I still have some visitors on my blog:) I actually have some new stuff I'll start posting soon. I've been working on a new and improved portfolio that should be wrapped up and ready to send out this weekend. I HAVE to make it to Cali this year!! Are you still at Sony?

Love your postcards! Would be cool to have a whole collection of those.

Hope all is well,

-Hans

Heya, Moe!
What I am really diggin alot about this one is, although not all the lines are there, the form is recognizable. Brilliant, bud!

Your cards are great! I love the balance of solid, evocative figure drawing, and bold graphic appeal of the ripples.

We named our baby Nohealani (and call her Nohea for short). My wife is half Samoan, so we went with a Polynesian name.

Awesome! My friends used to send a sketchbook around, but that just got so $$$. Haha. Should switch over to postcards! Love how pushed the body is.

Chris Bivins said...

Ken Chandler said...

Marvelous work Marcelo!
I used to do something very similar, only on envelopes. A friend of mine cut up a detergent box and wrote on the paper side, included postage and away it went. Good memories. Thanks for sharing your work with us. Amazing stuff!

Thanks everyone for your comments. I'm glad you liked the drawing.

Todd, I left my mailing address in the last post. If you want to send me something...

Hans, it's nice to see you back. I'm still at Sony, drop by for some sketchclubbing.

Pinflux, there was a period where I would do all my figure drawings with extreme distortions, but have since pulled back to more normalized proportions again. I guess this one started going in that "crazy" direction.

Jed, congrats! What a beautiful name. There's no greater joy or responsibility in life than our children.

Monico, we tried that too, and it did get expensive. The results didn't go as I might have hoped either. The postcard game seemed easier to manage, and less of a commitment.

Chris, there was a time when I tried to get my linework as clean and crisp as possible, now fight myself to NOT draw things with a clean and crisp line. Go figure.

Ken, if you still have some of those, you should post them. I'd like to see them.
