When I saw Tony O’hare’s artist trading card (ATC) featuring a blackface sheep at the Origami USA convention in New York, I so hoped it would be one I’d receive during the card exchange. Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be.
But all was not lost. When I arrived home after the convention I contacted Tony and proposed a post-convention exchange: one of his sheep cards for one of my ‘hatching chick’ cards (chick design by Sara Wooden). I was so pleased when he agreed.
The Blackface Origami Sheep is Tony’s design created specially for the 2011 OrigamiUSA ATC exchange and one of a series of Welsh-themed ATCs he has created.
Today, July 10th, I received Tony’s card in the mail.
I think it’s just wonderful to receive hand-delivered mail. Don’t you?
