It’s time, again for the book illustration promotional postcards quarterly mailing. Since it’s the end of summer, early fall season, my thought was a fair. The area county fair was last week. I’m not much for going out into crowds, so I’ve never been to the country fair even though it’s only about a 20 minute drive. I live vicariously through the photos in the weekly paper.
I do love the joy and excitement I remember from the annual summer visits to my grandparents’ homes. It was a treat to go to the boardwalk and the beach once a week. And the rides. Oh, my, what rides. I took my daughter back there when she was young, but the arcade and miles of boardwalk had diminished to one small block or so, and sadly, she was not impressed. The Six Flags park in a neighboring town was probably just too much competition.
I’m recreating my memories of the late summer fun in this quarter’s book illustration promotional postcards. Here is a sneak peek at what’s on the drafting table this morning.
