Save me a TAnda

A postcard project from the depths of the pandemic! This was a concept I came up with after a good six months away from social dancing, specifically Argentine Tango. Within tango culture, a “tanda” is a 3-4 song set, bookended by a brief intermission, that’s normally danced consecutively. All this is very much what I was missing, and as a result I ended up creating this design as a physical postcard to send to my friends abroad as a substitute for the real thing. This was actually my first postcard created entirely on my tablet using Procreate; the scrollwork is loosely inspired by traditiional “Fileteado” decorations from Argentina, and the blackletter script was drawn using a digital caligraphy brush.
