The object of this postcard game is simple: I will give an obscure, strange word from the more unused parts of the English language and you will draw an illustration of what you think it means on a blank postcard or blank greeting card without looking it up.
For example, if the word was "Kenspeckle", what would you draw? I might doodle a freckled Ken doll or perhaps a man named Ken speckling a canvas with paint.
The previous words have been: venustation, cataglottism, nubivagant, thalassophilous, apanthropinization, and snickersnee. To see what others have drawn for those, click here.
There's no wrong way to portray the word because you'll be illustrating it without looking it up first. On the back of the card, explain your thought process and how you came to the drawing that you did. As long as you receive a card with an image that was handmade and its corresponding explanation, you should rate a 5. You do not have to be a good artist; just a sense of humor and fun is required!
After you've made your card, you can look up what it means and have a laugh. It will be fun to see what your partner comes up with - maybe you will have had the same idea!
After sign-ups are complete, I will email out and post below the word that you will draw. You can use any kind of method to portray this word as long as the result is handmade, so collage and mixed-media are fine and dandy.
To protect those who enjoy these swaps, all participants must have been rated a 5 for at least 15 type 2 or 3 swaps.
Finally! If you participated in the previous swaps, please send me a scan or photo of the card you sent and/or received so that I may put them on a blog for everyone to enjoy. If you are not receiving my emails, please check your spam folder.
