Brownstones to Red Dirt Postcard

Here is a postcard i made for an online art benefit auction called Brownstones to Red Dirt about a pen pal program between a group of at-risk sixth graders living in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn and orphans from the war living in Freetown, Sierra Leone. It is mixed media of paper, fabric, prisma colors & acrylic paint. There are a bunch of AMAZING artists involved in this auction, so I encourage everyone to check it out:

I love this piece! The the two girls are cute as a button and the cut out fabric swatches and envelope flaps are a nice touch.
