Well, they're at it again, this mysterious couple of correspondents. What a pair of globe trotters.
Reading between the lines, I sense something of a cooling off from our X. Did Y overplay the whole romantic Paris theme last week? Is their current proximity making her nervous? Mind you, the way these two jet from place to place I expect he's on another continent by now.
This is a strange portrait of Monsieur Poirot, the great Belgian detective.While the gold leaf seems to suit, the grunge and clown make-up most certainly does not! I can imagine his moustache is curling in extreme distaste at the very thought.
Well, it certainly looks like it has a story to tell, though we may need to perform our own detective work to discover what... And what's all this about the shopkeeper's facial hair? The mystery thickens.
I'm playing the Postcard Challenge again. My protagonists X and Y are teasing each other from worldwide locations. Who knows where they'll appear next. You can see where they've been on a special page I made.
This postcard was created using image transfer technique. It is of course the marvellously talented David Suchet portraying the Belgian detective. When the ink ran I went with the flow and continued to colour him in until he resembled a clown, so I stopped and tried to convince myself he's just standing over a mysteriously murdered corpse under the lights of a Brussels theatre...
