Post’d: get on the postcard bus

 

“get on the postcard bus” – another handcrafted batch of greeting cards, this cohort featuring snapshots of my former beloved VW bus dubbed “the earth ship”.
from Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/BbtL7dQlOw4/
.
Photos were snapped with a Lomo Sardine Can camera (cork covered) with expired 35mm film during a “reunion” with the bus after over a decade during which old pals and I reacquainted ourselves with the noble beast thru stories and inebriants. .
The steed is now retired, painted majestically in a complete mural featuring various Grateful Dead inspired motifs –including Jerry Garcia and a dancing bear at the “wheel”, dancing skeletons, curious creatures and psychedelic meanderings throughout – as lives as a sauna(!) & wedding altar at the Mangy Moose Lodge up Big Cottonwood Canyon outside Salt Lake City, run by the funnest couple Honi and Day-Glo Dave. They even presented me with one of the old keys of this beloved vehicle which I keep with me in my travel wallet.
The batch of cards were water colored, inked with fountain pen, photos glued, tender sentiments written inside, and mailed to dear folks worldwide with affection.

Oh and some of these photos were taken by @twillomusic – thanks!
