China: The forbidden information.

One day while surfing the internet, DJ Mignon decides to google himself. DJ is surprised to find that he is listed in Holland and sends a post card to “the other” DJ Mignon.  Dutch DJ writes back and the New York lad is interested in learning more about what his counterpart does and if there are any other commonalities they share.

On the second exchange, DJ reveals that he is a  New Yorker, born and bred and operates a successful music service: supplying high end-disk jockeys to  posh events and mega media productions.  DJ’s only love is his mixed breed mutt,  Friendly; who shares a spacious 4 bedroom brownstone in a trendy area of Manhattan.

This week, I decided to scan in my cards( curses camera battery), but the scanner does not capture the colors in the background.  There is a painted surface of black and red with gold glaze. Inside the envelope is a poem on parchment paper. Sorry the scan is a tad crooked, also! 🙂

                                                                                   The back of the card,. of course is not participating as well.  The writing is actually very legible, except for my reads: Why a P.P. Box? Are you afraid I will appear on your door step? Must have missed your call. Lots of work this time of year. Can you send a photo? ( Just want to make sure you are not a dude 😉 D.J.

    Lovely vibrant postcard. re your request as to how i did the mountains on my Postcard. I used a big and juicy ink pad and a brayer. I tore my mountains from copier paper and laid the top part on my glossy card and brayered below in gray. I did this a couple of times to get snow and a darker colour. Then I played around with two sets of hills on paper and brayered between and so on. It took me ages to learn that I should take off almost all of the ink off the roller and do it a second time if necessary rather than go dark first time. Still not great at it but improving. Hope that helps
