BK Postcard // Ride Your Wave
During 2020, the beach was our refuge where we can breathe fresh air and be more grounded in nature. We watched many surfers wait patiently for just the right waves. When the wave emerges, some of the surfers take on a long ride. Some, inevitably, fall off the wave along the way only to quickly pick themselves up for the next set. It was mesmerizing to spend endless hours at the beach just watching them. I hope this "Ride Your Waves" postcard inspires you to take your unique waves, big or small.
Here is what Emil shares about his design process,
"I was inspired by vintage lithograph travel posters made by printing colors separately in layers. Following this idea, I painted separate gouache layers in black and white, which I colored and layered on digitally. This method allowed me to create a variety of textures to complement the mood of each piece. The imperfect layered edges also added a feeling of vibration to the imagery.
The Travel Within series was focused on introspection, so I aimed for each piece to portray more a sense of energy rather than a specific location. Each scene is surreal, yet welcoming and familiar, like a forgotten dream brought to life."
The postcard is printed on watercolor paper that writes beautifully with various pens, including your favorite fountain pens.
"Ride Your Wave" is a part of the Travel Within conceptual series we took upon during the 2nd half of 2020 as we were asked to stay closer to home, resulting in us getting to know more of the authentic self. The original artwork was created by Emil in collaboration with Frido.
