Here are our beautiful new Jonathan Cape postcards, complete with illustrative frame, as drawn by our pal James Davies. We wanted a postcard which we could use interactively - to get you guys involved in doodling when we’re out and out at events - and thought a frame around the edge of the postcard would work best to showcase your work. At first we thought we’d go with a photograph of an actual frame but thinking about it, it made so much more sense to go for an illustrated frame. I mean, it just fits in so much better with what we do, doesn’t it?!
You’ll have seen them (and maybe even drawn something on them!) if you were at Comiket last Saturday. If not, worry not as we’re sure to be at plenty of other events throughout the year.
Stay tuned as we’ve also got a selection of entries from our Comiket postcard competition coming up this week… maybe you’ll see yours!
If any of you came to see us at Comiket you’ll know we were running a postcard competition. Armed with loads of brand new, redesigned Jonathan Cape postcards we asked you to show us your illustrative talents by drawing something (anything!) on the postcard. Well, after much debate we’ve picked three entries we love: a winner, runner up and a highly commended choice. We’ll be posting these shortly but first we’ll be posting some of the other entries we received. Here’s one to get you started…
It certainly feels like we’ve been in winter mode for, oh I don’t know, about eight months. Hope the King of Spring hurries up…
