Mailable Art

This is the prototype for my new project, Mailable Art.  It went through the US postal system with flying colours.  (There was some florescent orange lines on the front, but since I used a varnish they came right off with a wet finger.)

Mailable Art is hand made mini-art in a postcard form; no two postcards are alike.
No one likes to get only bills and junk mail; Mailable Art adds a smile to someone's mailbox. 

I'll post examples latter on (once they are created).

I'm Back

After taking a "it is just too hot to do anything break," I am posting again and taking advantage of the three weeks I have off before fall semester starts.

Below is the first page of my sketchbook for Sketchbook Project 2012.  This year I am starting earlier, but need the weather to cooperate so that I can go hiking for inspiration and not collapse from high ozone levels and 3-digit temps.

My theme this year is "A Path Through the Trees."  I plan to incorporate a lot of samplings from my outdoor adventures, like this birch bark, and to pull from my science foundation.

I am also starting another project that I will post about tomorrow.
