My mail box was bulging from all of the great mail art. Take a look everyone! Thanks for all the happy mail everyone!
Dan sent this beautiful photograph which is was constructed from two 4x5 negatives. His process is complex. He manually manipulates the film, paints the film and then builds the image digitally. Does it get more hands on than this? The color of this photograph is amazing and the details of the overlay are beautiful (roses). This scanned picture does not do the work justice! It is amazing Dan!
Suus sent this delightful happy creature. The drawing is a wonderful pen and ink drawing with a colorwash (watercolor or ink wash). I love the graphic patterns and the friendly "Hallo"! This made my day Suus!
This is a beautiful print from Alessandro's peace series. He is exploring the subject of peace in all its forms. This was sent in June but just showed up early August...so glad it made it! Thanks Alessandro for sharing this. I loved the postcard you made and your hand painted stamp was awesome!
Susan McAllister - Sale Head Postie
A great ink postcard was sent from Susan. It is a cool surrealist graphic depiction of commercialism. I totally feel this person's headache! Great postie Susan!!!!
Jay sent artist stamps from his pop-up postcard series. They are all titled late Night TV. They are an awesome homage to creature features! I love these Jay! Two words for future inspiration...."Killer Shrews".
Arac - "The information Age" Postie
Arac sent this hilarious information age postcard. The back of the card reminds me that the GE Computer Radio at 6am is smarter than I am. The sad truth, it could have left out "at 6am". Beware all, they've got all our numbers!
JannaK - Digital iPhone photograph
This is three photographs merged and altered with nothing but the iphone. Janna is a pilot and you can see her plane to the left juxtaposed with butterflies from the zoo. I love the cool vintage look and bright colors!
