Making mailart every day since December 1st, 2010!
Mailart 365 has moved
Thanks for visiting Mailart 365. This site is an archive of mailart produced by artists doing mailart 365 from December 2010 to August 2016. As of July 2016, we moved to a new and more modern site at www.mailart365.com. Come on over and check us out there
Hannah, my eldest daughter had a nice selection of foam letters so I went for this which only used up four of them! Have sent it to the States so hopefully it will get there without any of the letters falling off!
February 28, 2011. Last day of the month, and one of the last mailings for "hearts' day". But it is also a little "boekie" for the letter "H". H is for Homer, and was done as a chapter for the collaborative mail art book Project 26. It was sent to jennlui, as she was one of the very first mail artists, back in 2009, that introduced me to mini-books.
Yay I'm back doing mailart. Planning a wedding, along with other million things I have to do, is not easy but I managed to come back into mailart scene.
As probably most of you know I love flowers. What you probably don't know is that I took a drawing class few weeks ago. And to be honest, that was one of the most boring classes I've done. And that's not because I don't like drawing, is because the teacher made us draw really dull stuff like empty bottles or women dummies. And even worse she would come around and tell us that we didn't draw that part properly but she wouldn't give us any hints how to do it better. She would let us struggle and waste (expensive) time till we get it (or not) right.
After two lessons I got bored and frustrated and gave up the course. I decided that rather than wasting my time drawing useless things I'll do better trying to teach my self how to draw things that I actually enjoy.
So this is the first of the flowers drawing series. I use the internet as my teacher and the good things is that I don't have to pay ridiculous amount of money to waste my time.
Running behind in posting...this one went out Friday.
Photos of some very old airmail stamps on envelopes that belong to a friend of mine. Collaged airmail strips around the border and added a couple of vintage stamps I had.
Very red, white and blue,
wouldn't you say?
28 Feb. 2011 Just trying my hand at sketching from a how to draw a zombie search on Google. The left is a little disproportionate but it's ok. My daughter and husband love playing Nazi Zombies on the XBox 360 and Left for Dead.
February 26-27, 2011. Last of the Valentine mailing and there will be an absolute "fluxus" one tomorrow. These two, last of the pink-red-hearts cards, went to KAM in Hong Kong, China, and a dear friend in Chicago who also makes hand-made greeting cards. It was fun to fill the month of February with "LOVE"!
