Welcome to Iceland ... Postcard challenge

As soon as I read Iceland for Darcys postcard challenge for this week I knew my first choice for image would have to be connected to Bjork. It took all week but I finally decided on the album cover for Gling Glo which is a jazz album and the first recording of hers.

Now my version is the best I can do as per usual and not the best ever but decided to stick to a pencil drawing rather than try and do anything else with it.

And the reverse of the postcard ....

Dear Florence
I urge you to take it easy and rest when you need to, please don't put your body under stress not required. Why not put your feet up and listen to some music ... This image on my card from Iceland is a wonderful jazz group I came across whilst travelling here. Most inventive!
Once more I urge you to relax!
