    Virginia Tech memorial postcards with paper cut illustrations by Lindsay Benson Garrett.
The tragedy at Virginia Tech on April 16, 2007 left many grieving hearts. This postcard series was created to remember the lives of those who passed away on that day. I researched the victims' lives to discover a memorable trait or quirk that could be illustrated and remembered. Delving into folk art, I utilized textured, colored papers that were cut or torn to create the images. Each postcard honors the beautiful life of one of the victims in hope of bringing a smile to those who loved them.
