Today is ‘World Post Day’, a perfect day to announce my new initiative, ‘SketchMail’. I am making a series of postcards illustrated with my original drawings, and I will send them by post to anyone of you, no matter in what part of the world you live in. This will not only bring you the memories of good old days of receiving postcards and collecting stamps, but also let you have an original sketch by me with a small message, as a token of thanks for your support in my Art journey. All you need to do is follow me on Instagram/Facebook Page, and comment or share my SketchMail posts. I will select a random winner who’ll receive the postcard.
If you’d like to join the initiative, here is some useful information:
1) DRAW: Make a drawing on an empty postcard. Blank postcards are hard to find today. You can buy them from Art Supplies Stores, or even make your own by cutting a thick paper. The standard size of a postcard varies from a minimum of 3.5 x 5 inch, to maximum of 4.25 x 6 inch. Check at your nearest Post Office to know the acceptable dimension in your area.
2) ANNOUNCE: Share your SketchMail Postcard on your social media. If you want to add the logo, download it here. Add #SketchMail hashtag, so others can find it, and enter a chance to get it.
3) MAIL: Pick a random winner from the people who commented on your SketchMail post, ask him/her the address, and send it! Don’t forget to write a personal message too. Send it old fashioned way, or put it in an envelope, if you want to add protection. Don’t forget to check postal stamp charges from your local post office.
The best part is that sending SketchMail will not cost you more than 2 Euros for a worldwide post. In return, you can ask the receiver to donate any money of their choice to someone needy. And/or ask them to send you a SketchMail in return! If you want to send a SketchMail to me, please ask for my address in a private message. Thank you!
