Happy summer everyone! Now that I’ve started using Instagram, I’ve fallen in love with the square format photograph. There are a couple of images from this month that got cut off since I’ve been converting them from regular to square, but you can still see the majority of the piece in each image. From now on I’ll be taking pictures in the square format so this shouldn’t be a problem in the future. Check it out:
Happy spring! I’ve been doing my best to enjoy the spring weather and come up with some new ideas to share with you. This month I dug deep into the archives and used a couple of photographs that I took in college (can you believe I wanted to be a photographer at one point?) in some of my pieces. I also discovered that they make excellent giant postcards! I’ll definitely be using that trick again. Check it out:
I have finally joined the current century and created an Instagram account. My username is the same as my Twitter: suburbanpenpal. I’ll still continue to post all of my photos on Flickr as well so you’ll never miss a thing!
Hello everyone! I’ve been busy putting together a video of how I make my mail art to share with you. You get a peak of my studio (in all its messy glory) and some of the things that I’m working on right now. Check it out:
Hello again and happy belated new year! One of my resolutions this year was to start blogging more regularly (nice and open ended :) ) which of course means I need to start making more work. The holidays were a nice break to finally catch up on my mail art and start some new projects (check out my Flickr) and I think I finally started to get back into my creative groove! See for yourself:
And now back to the mail art! I haven’t been very productive these days due to all of the stuff going on, (graduating, Europe,….actually that’s it) but quality trumps quantity! Here are some things that I’ve made in the past couple of months. I’m currently working on my holiday greetings, but at the rate I’m going you should probably expect to see a post about them in April. Anyway, check out the goods:
