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:
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!
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:
Happy summer everyone! I’ve been busy experimenting with some new things. This month I finally figured out a way to incorporate postcards into my work! I also started playing around with sealing wax, seeing what else it can do besides close an envelope. I think you’ll like the results! Check it out:
Hello again! You may have noticed that I ditched the numbering system and listed the date instead. I think it makes more sense going forward.
Anyway, this past month has been crazy busy, but I’ve also connected with a lot of cool new people. The PO box is up and running and I’ve even received some mail with the wrong zip code, which I mistakenly gave out when I first got my box. Better late than never! This month I continued to experiment with origami folding. I also started playing around with signs that I found at Scrap and various places. Take a look:
