Coming To A Mailbox Near You


A few posts ago I wrote about a mail art postcard that I sent out in 1997. Twelve years later the altered postcard finally found its way back to me. Part of the deal was that I would send something in return to anyone who included their name and address on the postcard.

In the spirit of mail art, I fulfilled my end of the bargain and sent these postcards to the three artists who contributed to the mail art project.

These were fun little doodles done with micron pens and watercolor pencils on watercolor paper. I hope the recipients will enjoy finding them in their mailboxes as much as I enjoyed making them.

Oh, those are gorgeous! It reminds me of a time when I was a teen and would write lots of letters with some pen pals and draw these elaborate designs on the envelopes. Yours are much more beautiful and I love the colors you used. Fun!! And what a treat to get a postcard like that in the mail... :) Silke
