A great tragedy befell Virginia Tech on April 16, 2007, leaving many grieving hearts with lost loved ones. My postcard series is an effort to honor those who died that day.
I researched the victim’s lives and find out a memorable trait or quirk that could be illustrated and remembered. Delving into folk art, I utilized textured, colored papers that were cut or torn to create the images. Each postcard honors the beautiful life of one of the victims in hope to bring a smile to those who loved them.
