I like the one of the large deer herd bunched up moving across the prairies in Sheridan or McLean County.
I had forgotten about many of these images, some of them posted here on this blog, so it was a good reminder to go back and see what I’ve accomplished this year.
It would have been kind of fun to use some snow plow imagery and make some remark about making way for Santa or some kind of thing.
But generally, I tried to stick to more generic kinds of images from Central North Dakota including Wilton, Washburn, Bismarck, Center, McClusky and Wing. The Soo Line Railroad Depot that houses the railroad museum in Wilton is a natural for this kind of project. It has that kind of “down home” feel to it.
The one I’m most proud of, however is the one on top. That one is not a template, but is a complete start to finish image that I worked up on Photoshop, including the page curl, the drop shadow, the background and of course the image itself.
In the end, I had 11 postcards but only turned three in to products for cash register impulse buys at local retailers. I’m so jazzed by the whole process I think I’m gonna go make some more.
