Just wanted to give a shout out to Robin over at Robin Ludwig Design for the lovely postcards she helped design. 🙂 I’ve been wanted to create a little F&W swag for a while now and these larger sized 5 x 7 postcards are just beautiful. (Look for them at AAD next week!!!) I also want to thank Robin for her help with the photobooth design as well (explained in the last blog post).

So here’s the picture: Post 500 words or less in the comments below. You’ve got until some random time on Friday or Saturday to get it done and I’ll draw on Sunday. 🙂 Incidentally, the title of the picture is called “Waiting” by Donato Giancola. (Check out the gallery for a ton of additional artwork – lots of familiar book covers in there.) What is she waiting for? Death? A lover? Alien Bears? Only YOU can say.… Read more
