Profile Information

Mail-Artist since:
2009 (and not aware being mailarting since 1979)
My Website:
http://heleendevaan.blogspot.com
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
Making illustrations is my life.
Furthermore: I like to see other people's creative outbursts, love to see creative additions to envelopes. I like stamps, like to communicate via art works, I'm fascinated by how snail mail works: put a stamp and address on an envelope and a whole system of people and transportation means is bringing that single envelope to wherever you want.
Count up all previous words and see: Mail Art is inevitable.

P.S. If you want to create and send me mail art about your favourite (weird or common) animal I will be most happy; I'll like to post it on my http://realweirdanimals.blogspot.com blog.

The Soccer Field AAP's

Posted on October 24, 2015 at 3:36pm 4 Comments

For some unknown reason I got a note-pad full of soccer field sheets. First I wanted to draw my favourite soccer team in it, but that appeared  too much work regarding the little time I have.

Fortunately some colleague mail artists are willing to help to complete the sheets.

I'll post the…
