If you’ve been closely following this project (and following Sketchy Spaces on Facebook or Instagram), then you probably know that I am a big fan of Clarissa Jacobson and her movie, Lunch Ladies. It should then come as no surprise that when I saw post office muralist Tom Rost’s watercolor Camp Cooks, I knew it was time for a Lunch Ladies (and Tom Rost, of course) inspired COVID Card. Perhaps a Lunch Ladies “nod” would be more accurate as a true Lunch Ladies Sketchy Space (oh, there will be one when the COVID Card project is wrapped up) would be way sketchier.
You can read about Rost and see several of his works here.
Rost made three post office murals: Rural Mail Carriers (Paoli, Indiana), Pioneer Postman (Elkhorn, Wisconsin), and Farm Yard (Lancaster, Wisconsin).
