last year, i was invited by noor shamma to submit a couple of artworks for the postcard initiative, which is an ongoing initiative endorsed by the noor dubai foundation to help cure preventative blindness. these original postcards will be sold, and proceeds from sales will help cure blindness in developing countries.
above are the two submissions i worked on during my fall semester at risd last year. i was getting back into using watercolours for one of my class assignments, and wanted to use watercolours on these postcards as well. i really liked the end results, and i hope whoever purchases these will like them as well. i hope these postcards found a happy home, and helped with someone's eyesight somewhere in this world.
thank you noor for allowing me to be a part of the postcard initiative, and contributing to noor dubai foundation's amazing cause.
