Peace ATCs

Peace ATC 1 Peace ATC 2 Peace ATC 3

'What do you think the future will bring? Any sort of future - tomorrow, 2070, your future!' This set of cards is my response to this Swap-bot challenge.

Space ships, Tardis, robot vacuum cleaners ... all a bit predictable so I thought about what I would like to have if I were queen of the world. With all of the lunacy going on in the world these days what I would like in the future would be peace. I would like for all of the meglomaniacs in the world to get a grip and realise that they are not going to make up for a rotten childhood or get even with their parents by killing everyone who isn't the same colour, religion, tribe, political persuasion or shoe size.

For those interested in the technical stuff, I used a clear inkpad and embossing powder of various colours for the word. All of the drawings were done using watercolour pencil which was then blended using a water brush. They are off in the mail tomorrow to their new owner in the US (only a day or so late in setting off on their journey).

It is very meaningful.

Your message is understood from the picture.

At last, it sympathizes in addition because the meaning of your sentences is
understood.

The artwork reminds me of crayon drawings which I just love to do.
