7,107 Isles of Smiles!

Drawing The Philippine Map With Black Marker.

I came up with that slogan quite spontaneously after hearing of the controversy surrounding the recent attempt at a new slogan to boost Philippine tourism. That slogan died a brutal death. I, however, just have a natural love for rhyming words and puns with a punch!

Last month (which is now part of "last year"), a family friend's daughter was doing a school report on the Philippines as part of sharing one's heritage. They had asked me for help on the visual aid. Armed with a few office supply tools such as a black marker, mechanical pencil and poster paper, I drew the Philippine map and decorated it with actual postcards I received. I slaved away all night to finish it.

The finished product:

Finished Product! Hope It's A-worthy!

I was told that the daughter earned an A+, and the teachers requested to have the poster displayed in school for a while. I was happy for the well-deserved grade and the fact that her report impressed everyone!

Love the poster. I got a postcard from Thailand the other week which sent me greetings from the land of smiles. Is there a dispute where this land is:-)

Well done! You know that you could actually make your own postcards doing just what you're doing - take the finished art work to a print shop and have it put on card stock. It really isn't that expensive to do.

Or - make your own envelopes!
