SENT CARD #20: Communication

“Utility is when you have one telephone, luxury is when you have two, opulence is when you have three – and paradise when you have none.”

~ Doug Larson

This card I sent to Tripsik in Estonia. She likes to receive postcards that feature images of radios, books, TVs, typewriters, telephones, newspapers and the like. So I thought this postcard with a design by Leendart Jan Vis is just perfect for her ūüôā

The card traveled a distance of 670 miles (1079 km) in 10 days to reach Tripsik’s mailbox.¬†I’d say a phone call would surely have been faster but not as lovely and cute as the little bear in midst its many phones ūüėČ

Have great day!

Angel Ink

Hi everyone,

This mail art piece is an ink drawing on white copy paper that I call “Angel Ink”. I sent it to Nadine Wendell-Mojica in response to this beautiful artwork I posted earlier this week. It immediately inspired me and I imagined an angel reaching out to the girl in case she falls… well, and that’s basically what I decided to draw : ) – it’s as simple as that ; P

Have a great weekend!

FLUXUS

Fluxus” by¬†E¬†from France.

I am not really sure if “E” is referring to the Fluxus art movement of the 60s but there is a wonderful quote from the Fluxus artist Emmett Williams that I’d like to share with you:

“Das Leben ist ein Kunstwerk, und das Kunstwerk ist Leben.”

“Life is a work of art, and a work of art is life.”

~ Emmett Williams

The BEAR in you

This piece of mail art went to Daniel “Bear” Qualls in South Carolina. I’d say it’s pretty obvious why I decided to create some bear art for Bear ; )

SENT CARD #16

This postcard went to Lisa in Winter Haven, Florida.

It travelled for 7 days and crossed a distance of 4764 miles (7667 km) carrying this quote from Goethe:

“Das ist das Angenehme auf Reisen, dass auch das Gew√∂hnliche durch Neuheit und √úberraschung das Ansehen eines Abenteuers gewinnt.”

“This is what’s great about travelling, that even the ordinary becomes adventurous through novelty and astonishment.”
