[Image 2: This postcard is by Otis Xx. The 6x6 grid of numbers referenced are:
| 6 | 32 | 3 | 34 | 35 | 1 |
| 7 | 11 | 28 | 27 | 8 | 30 |
| 19 | 14 | 16 | 15 | 23 | 24 |
| 18 | 20 | 22 | 21 | 17 | 13 |
| 25 | 29 | 10 | 9 | 26 | 12 |
| 36 | 05 | 33 | 4 | 2 | 31 |
The numbers are the set of integers from 1 to 36. They are arranged in the pattern of the Magic Square of the Sun. Every row, column, and diagonal sum to 111, and all columns or all rows together sum to 666.
The numerical and textual formulae referenced above are Numerological equations in the tradition of Pythagorean Arithmancy. Each letter is assigned a number from 1-9, and the letters of a word or phrase are reduced through a process of summation of digits and used to draw out meaning. The significant numbers found in these reductions are marked on the Magic Square.]

[Image 3: A landscape-oriented digital illustration with a white background. Fire engine red, darker sky blue, black, and white are the colors used in this piece, and the lines are a mixture of thinner sized and wider and blurry – similar to spray paint. The center image which takes up the majority of the page looks to be an otherworldly creature of some kind. Red makes up the general background and shape of the creature. The creature's form looks similar to the shape of a butterfly except there are three thick long red lines, possibly legs, extending outward from the butterfly shape which has a wider oval at the base or feet and each has 11 or 12 thick black lines of varying lengths extending from them. Behind the ovals are several thinner red lines which roughly outline the "feet." On top of the central red butterfly shape are nine white ovals of varying sizes and shapes which each contain a smaller red oval ring and a thick black dot in the center – one might interpret these as eyes. In the center of the red butterfly shape, there is also a large white ring with 5 smaller white oval rings touching within it; each of these ovals has within them a smaller black ring and inside these rings are small white dots. On the top "wings" of the creature sit two red arced lines with a red line coming down the center and several white dots on top of the red arches; these look to be horns or ears. Thin spiky red line outlines this creature. outside this, a thick, semi-opaque grey line creates a circle around the creature, and in the same opacity and thickness, 14 blue lines cut through the grey circle outwards, off the page. in each space along the grey ring between the blue lines sit either a word or a sequence of letters in uppercase red gothic font. the bottom center two spaces hold the words "SACRED," and "RACE," while all the other slots in between the blue lines read "RRR."]

[Image 4: a landscape-oriented digital illustration with a white background. Fire engine red, darker sky blue, black, and white are the colors used in this piece, and the lines are a mixture of thin sized and wider and blurry – similar to spray paint. The main image that takes up the central space on the page is an otherworldly creature that looks to be part winged-insect and part something else drawn in thick blue line. The creature has an ovular long abdomen that's striped red and white. Its head is large and roughly circular with long pointy ears which arch outward; it has large Pac-Man shaped blue eyes with red sparkles in them, snake-like nostrils, and a cute smile. The creature's large wings arch outward from its abdomen with several points each; they are left mostly white on the inside but have some red lines throughout following the general outline. Behind the creature is mostly filled with opaque blue and red patches. on top of the red and blue background are various smaller cartoon-style drawings in black, red, and blue lines of varying thickness, including several fir trees, some smaller bugs/creatures, grass patches, flowers, smiley faces, and sparkles. There is also a set of eyes and a nose drawn in black that sits right above the abdomen of the main creature. in the bottom right of the page on a slant upward in all uppercase outlines block letters, the text reads "THE FACES OF DEATH LIVE TO TELL MORE THAN WHAT IS KNOWN."]
Untitled by Evan Fusco

[Image 6: This postcard is by Evan Fusco. The background of this graphic horizontal rectangular image is a graphic gradient with embossed squiggle shapes through out the frame. These designs are superimposed over a gradient that transitions from gray blue to white to gray blue, diagonally positioned across the image. Central in the image is the largest text that reads “SIQ” in a bold geometric font [pink] The text slowly dissolves to background in a downward gradient. Under this text reads “sick in quarters” in the same font [pink] and smaller in size.]
[Image 7: White background with SIQ capitalized on bottom left hand corner in a black gothic font. In the middle of the postcard is a black vertical squiggle design that reflects a design made of wrought iron. On the bottom right are four black lines that are spaced out for a mailing address. On the top right hand corner is a black medical symbol / Caduceus, featuring two snakes wrapped around a staff with wings. This symbol marks where you put your stamp.]
