BEAR…

Hello dear readers 🙂

“Bear…” (ink on paper; ca 16 x 22 cm)

It’s always so much fun to create mail art for my IUOMA mail art friend “Bear” from South Carolina. I try to come up with a new bear-themed piece every time I make something for him. Last time it was a roaring bear’s head I called “The Bear In You” and this time I sent him this sketch/doodle of a bear on the edge of a rock.
If you look closely enough you can see that the bear is made up of the word “bear” scribbled over and over again in various forms and shapes.

I knew I wanted to do something typographic when I saw this bicycle typogram by Aaron Kuehn online. It’s so cool! Compared to that my bear is rather lame 😦 You almost can’t tell that it’s typographic – and only very slightly so – unless it get’s pointed out to you. Aarons work though is just amazing. Don’t foget to check out his site http://aarline.info/hotaar/!

Well, of course I also came up with something special for the envelope. I roughly sketched this mountainious landscape on it using a photograph of the Great Smokey Mountians, the Apalachian Mountain Range in Kentucky as a refrence picture. I had to draw the reflection of it though because I prefer to write the address on the envelopes right side. I think anywhere on the front would be fine for mailing though.

So, what do you think? Have you ever done a typogram?
