Feeling inspired to make Mailartists portraits

I have started to experiment with a process new to me where I scan miscellaneous scraps directly onto my printer scanner. I then go at them with white-out, removing areas I dislike.  Then i repeat the process, scan, white-out and so on until it feels finished. For now i have decided to use this process to make mail art portraits with the intent of turning them into artistamps. So far I have completed Crackerjack Kid, Serse Luigetti, C. Mehrl Bennett, Jenny Hinchcliff, Carmen Kennedy, Picasso Gaglione and Joey Patrickt
