Postcrossing Catchup and Book Talk
I sent the above sketch of pop violinist Lindsey Stirling to a fan in Vladivostok, Russia. I've sent prints of my Ian McDonald sketch  to a couple other Postcrossing contacts in the US. Special thanks to $1-and-up studio sponsors  for your support of my Postcrossing art-card initiative.

As you may know, I love chatting about interesting books and recent reads. Drawing authors has provided a conversational entry point for the notes I jot on the backs of these cards, so thanks, David, for allowing me to extend our coffeeshop talks to others around the world!

I sense authors-of-current-reads may prove to be a convenient default if not a focal theme for my monthly portrait prints.
