First Post

This is one of the first postcards Jess sent. Last September she wrote me "...I drew this while in Ethiopia, looking out my hotel window. The only pencil I had was a purple colored pencil." As you can see she may be the better artist of the two of us :)


  1. Seeing this again makes me laugh. You can see that my pencil was so dull that I had to scrape into the paper to make it work. I was desperate to get this project started. I am wondering why didn't I just go to the hotel kitchen to get a knife? I don't know but it could be that I had just had a butter knife incident in Egypt involving pyramid security guards. More likely though it was laziness.

  2. Oh my gosh!!! I remember the butter knife incident at the pyramids - how funny was that!?! Crazy times.
