Jumpy owl

Look who arrived here after a long travel from Old Orchard Beach to Heidelberg! Nancy sent this slow owl (say that ten times!) ages ago. I love it and I'm laughing about it. It has everything good mail art needs: eyes, rust, fringes.…

Monotype from Michalis Kotsaris, Greece

This is beautiful. It is number one of a series of two monotypes, created by Michalis Kotsaris. I am really curious about the technique. The paper is handmade, I guess. Thank you, Michalis.

My day

A Treat Grows in Brooklyn

Weaving a story around an old Cracked card that depicts Brooklyn of long ago, Theresa reimagines the scene as it might unfold with the current residents of the contemporary epicenter of the hipness.

A small story:…
