As she says, after the Kickstarter hits $1400, postcards will be upgraded to 5 x 7.  
Less than $100 to go to my final stretch goal and still one week left.  This is really a great deal.  At the $20 level you get 12 postcards plus a print of one of the dragon sketches.  I am not currently offering prints of my sketches anywhere else and the postcards will not be available for such a low price once the kickstarter  is over.

So far, a great illustration of the poem.  One warning:  Do not read if you are feeling perky and wish to continue feeling that way.
