|back of Carol Graham's postcard|
The postmark deadline is today. There were just over 2 dozen artists who joined, representing 14 states, and 3 countries. (Come on EU, you were underrepresented!)
My goals for the postcard swap were:
1. Have fun.
2. Meet other artists. The swap was set up in a way that an artist was sending a postcard to one artist but receiving one from a different artist.
3. Promote those artists, and hopefully have them promote each other. I agreed from the onset to repost/share all the postcards which were posted online and to put together a couple of blog posts featuring all the artists' work. This is first one.

There will be another #postcardswap. I am looking at twice a year. Sign ups in December, make and post in January, and then continue every January and July. Suggestions to this? Is it doable? It is certainly not set in stone. In the meantime, I recommend you all check out #twitterartexhibit.
