More Mail Art

Thanks for the great mail art you guys!! I just received a envelope sewn together out of a screen, tapeology, found object painting and a meaningful visual diary of deep feelings about Katrina. You guys are way too creative. Maybe this all stems from me having boatloads of pen pals when I was a kid.

A journal page from one of my smaller books. Aluminum tape, stencils, photos, sketches, found object prints, decorative tape, and journaling all make up this spread. See how I cut out part of the photo on the right and included it in the chest of the sketch? Try drawing off of your photos and don't worry about "getting it just right" whatever that means.

I just loved pen pals as a kid. Have always had a fascination with mail. Heck, I even read all my junk mail.

I wonder where my penpal from childhood is today?
Very cool mail art.

I love the way you integrated the photo into your drawing. I'm going to play with that technique.
