This postcrosser from Lithuania thought my request for card-altering was crazy and felt very strange damaging the postcard. Hmm interesting interpretation of altered postcards. Nonetheless, I loved the delicate drawings she scratched out on the blue sky, especially the frock atop the bridge.
This card was created by Daniel Green, a client artist of CE. They're doing their annual benefit at the Merchant Exchange this year. It's an exciting event where portraits of celebrities are created by the talented artists and funds are raised for their art program. I hope many people will buy tickets to support this amazing organization. I have a large art collection from their many openings. For tickets, go to CreativityExplored.org/ArtChangesLives2013.

Kobe Port Tower, Mt Rokko. My house is on Nagamineyama, a mountain range very close to Rokko.
My mom finally sent me a set of Gotochi cards from Hyogo Prefecture (my nabes). You can only buy these at local post offices and I've been curious about them for about a year. I didn't have time to look for them when I was home last October. But these are very cool shape postcards. Next time I go home, I'm going to visit local post offices so I can collect cards from those prefectures.
