119- oh Mercury! {JannaK}

Thursday, January 29, 2015

One of the great gifts of mercury retrograde is bringing one's attention back to abandoned or unfinished projects. So I'm back again! ;). Clearly I appear to be on a several year plan for my 365 project but that's okay. It's about the journey, not the destination.

015 - Usagi : Chanoyu

Tuesday, January 27, 2015
Elena didn't want me to illustrate this one. It's going to our solicitor. We've had such poor experiences with people in the legal profession that we have pretty much decided that the whole profession lacks any humanity. She sees this as not just throwing away good ink, but as giving part of my soul away to the undeserving.

Personally, I see it a different way. I think that these people have probably grown up deprived of art and warmth and hence they amuse themselves by generally being horrible to people. I view the act of sending art to people who don't have the milk of human kindness, such as lawyers, credit card companies and the like as an act of charity, and one which can only help bring peace to the world.

014 - The Bayou

Tuesday, January 27, 2015
This one is going back to the estate agents. Yes it's the same poxy estate agent! They send a letter to every single flat in the building and these all end up in the bin, so I fish them out and draw on them to send them back.

The artwork comes from The Saga of the Swamp Thing book 2, by Alan Moore, Totleben and Bisette, which I am re-reading after about 8 years. It is just as good as I remember it, but these days, with an understanding of art, I can really revel in the artwork as well as just Moore's storytelling

013 - Modified Face

Tuesday, January 27, 2015
Another quick sketch, with a face from the newspaper as a starting point. Turned out nothing like the original photo, but quite happy with the overall effect. This one is being returned to the local estate agent and is done in Biro. I'm going through a bit of a ball point pen phase

012 - Shady

Monday, January 26, 2015
House prices in London are so insane that they are desperate for people to sell up so they can cash in. As a result, the local estate agents regularly send out speculative (junk) mail to every house on the street in the hope that they can be the ones who make you move out of your home. I'm not really sure that this return to sender will actually stop them from sending these, but it's gotta be worth a go

The pic was an attempted quick sketch of Mark Wahlberg in biro

011a - Olympic rower thank you note

Sunday, January 18, 2015
I couldn't bring myself to count this as part of my 365 as it's not an envelope and not going to be viewable as it travels the postal system. I've just sold a set of Olympic rowers stamps on eBay and done this little watercolour and biro Thank You note which is going inside. Just wanted to share a little more art with the mail and with you


The original stamps looked like this


but as I can't be bothered to draw faces, I decided to put Liam Neeson and Denzel Washington in instead.

If you want a set of stamps yourself, get yourself over to the little site that Elena and I run at Postcardsfrom.us and we promise to send illustrations along for free :-)

011 - Floral

Sunday, January 18, 2015
In keeping with my idea of sending mailart for free this year, this one is going out to an eBay buyer, who has bought some quilling magazines from Elena on our eBay shop. The envelope art comes as a bonus and is something that I've been doing for a few years now


Linework was done by me from a stencil, but Elena is the colour master in our house so she finished it off with all colour work

010 - Junk mail - it goes around

Thursday, January 15, 2015

This was inspired by an anti war campaign poster from 2009. I absolutely love the concept of the wraparound poster and what it means and wanted to apply the Karma idea to junk mail


Done in Sharpie and biro.

008 - Gunichi Returns (to sender)

Thursday, January 15, 2015


Envelope being returned to Aqua, the credit card company, who have managed somehow to get my address and the details of all my tenants that I had too. Most of the envelopes I've sent back are from them. Hope they get the message to stop sending me spam. But not too soon as I still have another 357 to go
