Oh dear. Once again I have gotten quite behind on blogging. A new job tends to have that effect. At least I have not gotten behind on making mail art, which means I have lots to share! I’ve been feeling more inspired lately and (I hope) it shows in what I’ve been making. I’ve also discovered my new found love of Instagram filters. So cool! Last but not least, I made two holiday designs that look nothing like each other because that’s what I do 🙂 Check it out:
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:
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:
Hello everyone! I’ve been a bit delinquent in getting mail art out these days, but I have a good excuse! I turned in my masters thesis!! I’m not technically done yet, but I’ve already started to settle into a new schedule and I hope to be making more mail art very soon. Sadly, I haven’t had much time in these past two months since I’ve been finishing up my thesis, but I hope you’ll enjoy what I made. Check it out:
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!
