During this difficult period of social distancing as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, I was fortunate enough to be a part of a project with the company BookBlock.
The stationary and gift company has created a service in which you can send a free postcard to a loved one during this time, with the opportunity to donate money to the hardworking NHS staff.
The initiative allows you to stay in touch with those who are dear during this period and also allows you to send messages to the frontline workers too.
The design was created from a digital drawing, which I then used to create a Lino Cut.
The 'Swallow of Hope', design inspired by the universal symbol of hope, the swallow, which is a protected bird in many cultures.
The postcard is available for purchase at https://www.bookblock.com/positivepost/swallow-of-hope
