Australian Postage Stamps
This brief required me to create four stamps and a First Day Cover for a theme which we chose that related to Australia. The theme that I chose was Extinct Australian Animals. For my stamps I chose to do watercolour painting and chose the 4 animals which are the Gastric Brooding Frog, the Tasmanian Tiger, the Paradise Parrot and the Norfolk Island Kaka. A stamp was also to be created that would be stamped onto the First Day Cover with the date it was issued, what the stamp series is and the words "First Day of Issue." I also came up with the slogan "Ghosts of the Past" which was to be put on all items.
