A kid’s take on the traditional “Wish you were here,” postcard.
For example, we recently received this from a good friend of my daughters. He was in Lake Tahoe at the time. In the bubble on the left, inexplicably and delightfully written backwards, Luke, who can be quite the whiner, groans “With the blast shield down I can’t even see, how am I supposed to fight??”
When is the last time you, while relaxing in some lovely destination, sent a buddy a postcard that said nothing whatsoever regarding your splendid vacation? Instead, you simply draw a key Star Wars scene.
Emerald immediately began working on a reply. Here, we see Han Solo feeling sorry for himself that Leia clearly loves Luke. Leia is trying to explain that “It’s not like that. He’s my brother.” [Emerald asks that I make sure you know this image shows a "work in progress."]
Not only is Star Wars awesome, but it still feels great to get real mail. If your kid wants to send us a random illustration (see top image for postal address) of something they are into we promise to draw something in response and send it back. Don’t forget to include a return address!!
