The Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap hosted by Kat Sloma from Kat Eye Studio is always fun. I’ve participated for six years now and I love that you get to connect with artists all over the world.

The first two years, I printed my cards for the postcard swap on my inkjet printer. After that, I’ve chosen to get mine from my RedBubble shop because the printer wasn’t doing as good a job.

I’d like to thank Kat for organizing this. She and her team of volunteers have done a massive amount of work. All the participants sent her 5 postcards, and she sent 5 of those, plus one of her own, to every single one of us.

We end the swap with a blog hop, and this is my entry. Check out the others by following the link at the bottom of the post.

I sent these postcards to Kat for distribution.

These are the ones I got in the postcard swap this year. Where possible, they’re linked to the website or facebook page of the artist, so you can check out more of their work.
