Postcards from the Future

Postcards from the future was a set of illustrated postcards distributed at CoLab's 2019 Blueprint event. CoLab's finest prognosticators got together to tell made up stories about possible fictional futures. The postcards could be sent via the mail to anyone you know from the future you choose.

I sketched and created 16 individual illustrations with unique color palettes for the project. You can view them and send the cards to your friends at fromthefuture.world
