The card is such a classic African image. I love the colored pencil, this one and her next card are just stunning!
Jessica drew this card after a trip to Kenya to see her former host family. She hadn't seen them in a decade, but found other than all being a bit older and further along in their careers it was an easy reconnection. I often wonder about visiting my old host families, but don't live or travel anywhere in their area of the world anymore. Its been 10 years for me too, and I like to image what my host siblings grew up to become. Any people you used to know that you wonder 'where are they now?' This postcard also is a continuation of our recent 'inspiration' theme. Jessica was inspired by an in flight magazine. She wrote to me these are a great resource. So, I think we have finally found the one purpose for this type of reading material- congrats on that Jess people were never sure what those were for until now :-)
