i am a huge fan of postcards. it's obvious from my blog title and it's obvious by the random little things i like to post about. so when i stumbled across these illustrated postcards by Valerie Chua on Anna's blog (one of my favorites, you should definitely check it out) i almost squealed with glee. goodness, aren't they completely marvelous? these illustrations are the epitome of wistful. the girls' unsmiling faces and muted colors bring about a plaintive aspect to the otherwise gorgeous atmosphere that these postcards create. looking at these collaged portraits, the girls are seemingly begging for their story to be told. but in these cards, i think that part is up to you.
