In case you missed the announcement in my July newsletter, I am starting a new project called Project Postcard. Project Postcard is a collaboration with artists from around the Pacific Northwest. Every month one EMP newsletter subscriber will be chosen at random to receive a postcard that features a photograph from my personal work on the front and a sketch or drawing from a PNW artist on the back. Each postcard will be featured on my blog, along with a short interview with the artist.
The first postcard, with an absolutely beautiful sketch by Seattle artist Isobelle Ouzman, goes out in a little over a week, on Friday, August 5th. I’ll have more about Isobelle on the blog next week, but for now-if you aren’t familiar with her work stop what you are doing right now and go check out her website. She is amazing, and I am beyond excited to show you all the postcard.
To celebrate the start of this project the phenomenal print company, Artifact Uprising, is giving away one $50 gift certificate to an EMP newsletter subscriber. I’m sure it comes as no surprise that Artifact Uprising’s maxim, Inspired by the disappearing beauty of the tangible, resonates deeply with me. Forays into film, letterpress, printed photographs, and now a digital newsletter with a snail mail twist…I am all about the tangible. Artifact Uprising’s products are stunning, and I have been thrilled with every single thing I have ordered from them. And yep, the postcards for this project are printed by Artifact Uprising.
I will randomly select the winners of both the Artifact Uprising gift certificate and Isobelle’s and my August postcard from the EMP newsletter subscriber list on Thursday August 4th at 8pm PST. All subscribers are eligible, no matter if you live here in the Pacific Northwest or in the farthest reaches of Antarctica. Sign up today!
