Mail Art Monday


This piece will be going out later this week.  Upon completion I realized it was somewhat inspired by a story a friend recently told me.  It's funny how the subconscious works sometimes.

The Tale of the Woman and Whale

The tale of the woman and whale,
will bring you to tears without fail.
Although it is sad,
you can be glad
you've helped them live on through the mail.

To play the guitar with a muff... first might appear to be tough.
Yet dogs I've found
quite like the sound, 
so you see it's really not ruff!

"Is it Gravity..."

This piece was sent out earlier this week to a fellow SF Correspondence Co-op member.  It is a little bit different from all the other collage covers I've done in that the story for this one both starts and ends on the back.

It was also fun to play with the orientation.  I began thinking that as an envelope travels through the mail it is viewed from many different angles so why shouldn't I create compositions with that in mind?

Mail Art Monday*

Some friends of mine were recently married so I decided to include some advice on the piece of mail art I made to send their card.  (Oh how I love advertisements from the 60's)

What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?

*I know that technically today is Tuesday but these files made it very clear to me they were NOT to be uploaded yesterday.

Where have I been? (Part 5)


Earlier this month I spent some time in SE Alaska.  Below are my (clickable) sketches from the different places I visited.

Juneau - July 4th
Juneau - July 4th
Glacier Bay
Ketchikan - July 7th
Ketchikan - July 7th

I do not work on a sketch once I leave a location and prefer to leave them unfinished to be a more accurate record of the time spent there.  Sometimes a sketch will develop into another more developed piece later on but for me the main purpose of sketching is to help me remember an experience.

MATERIALS: Baron Fig sketchbook (, HB graphite, ballpoint pen, Greenleaf & Blueberry watercolor (
