Rocket Grants postcard art

In 2012 we initiated a program of commissioning local artists to make small drawings for the Rocket Grants outreach cards.

Charlie Mylie was the first participant, and these are the eight designs he made. They were printed at business card size. Charlie became a 2014 award recipient.
