Postable’s March featured artist is the lovely 1canoe2.
1canoe2 letterpress is the stuff dreams are made of – Carrie and Beth are childhood friends who always loved to draw. Now the two are all grown-up and work together as professional illustrators, designers and printers. The name 1canoe2 comes from years of the two dreaming up big ideas around a campfire and floating down a spring-fed Missouri river in a canoe. Two girls, one canoe. One canoe, two.
We asked Beth some questions…
* How many folks are involved in the whole design process?
2-3 people touch the art before it gets to Postable
* What are the different roles?
Carrie does all the illustration, Beth and Carrie do the final design together, Kate turns it into a Postable product
*Where are your headquarters?
In a barn. In a cornfield. In the middle of Missouri. We love it here.
* What’s your favorite card that you’ve designed (on Postable)?
My personal favorite is the Birthday Stripes card.
* Where do you draw your inspiration for your design?
The world around us, our rural setting, pretty colors.
* If you had to describe your cards in one word, what would it be?
*If you could spend a day with any person (dead or alive) who would it be?
Um, maybe Martha Stewart? I’m pretty intrigued by her savvy business skills.
*If you had to paint your house inside and out with the same color, what would it be? Why?
Citron green. It’s just my happy color.
*What would you choose as your last meal?
Mashed potatoes, cheese curls, shrimp cocktail and sparkling grape juice. Do I know how to party or what?
