Mail Art Round-Up: March, April & May 2014

It’s been a while! I have been completely distracted by grad school these past few months and the pesky business of finishing my masters thesis in art history. I’m almost done!! Once I finally finish I hope that I will be able to return to my previous level of productivity. However, I’m pretty happy with the few things that I managed to send in the past couple of months. I’m particularly excited about incorporating some of the elements that  I made with a laser-cutter. See if you can spot them!

Mail Art Round-Up: January & February 2014

A very belated happy new year everyone! I am busier than ever these days, which sadly means that once again mail art is taking a back seat  to more pressing concerns. However, I did manage to make a couple of things this past month that I’m pretty happy with. I got a grommeting tool for Christmas and I’ve had a lot of fun finding new uses for it. Check it out!

Mail Art Round-Up: November & December 2013

Hello again! I hope you’ve all had a chance to check out the Making Mail documentary trailer. I can’t wait to see the film! I’ve been delinquint again in posting, but I’m proud to say that I did manage to get some holiday mail out this year. Surprisingly, I actually stuck to the same theme for all of my holiday mail, which never happens. I ended up using my new how-to books on masonry and electrical (thank you Savers!). Anyway, I want to wish everyone a wonderful holiday and a very happy new year!

Mail Art Round-Up: September & October 2013

A belated hello again! Fall has been crazier than usual and unfortunately my non-mail art activities such as my job and grad school have required more of my time and attention than normal. As a result, I’m doing a combined post for all of the mail that I made in the past two months. On the plus side, I managed to photograph a couple of collages/unfinished pieces (I oscillate between calling my non-mail art pieces “collages” and “unfinished mail art” because I think everything can potentially become mail art, but some of them I’ll probably never send) that I hope you’ll like. Enjoy!

Mail Art Round-Up: August 2013

Summer’s almost gone and I have no idea where the time went. I didn’t make much this month because I was focused on getting my thesis work done (btw I’m writing my masters thesis on mail art. Did I mention that already?). I have a bunch of pieces started and letters written, but I haven’t been able to finish much of anything these days. Still, I made a couple of things that I think are pretty nifty. Check it out:
