Inspiring mail art friends

Of course, mail art wouldn’t work without having people who you could send it to. Nadine Wendell-Mojica is one of my best mail art friends, she even kept on sending me the most wonderful and entertaining ink sketches when I wasn’t getting around to do any postal art myself. It is thanks to her that I never forget to come back to drawing, painting and crafting for my dear mail art friends all around the world after months of inactivity.
Here is a collage of all the great encouragement I’ve received from her so far:

Catch up

#1) Just a quick intro to this post:
This is a potpourri of all the mail art and postcrossing cards that I’ve sent and received but haven’t shared with you yet. I don’t feel like I can go on with new projects, new mail art and new postcrossing endeavours while there are still things sitting around my desk that I haven’t at least mentioned to you. It would somehow go against what I set out to do with this blog: Share.

So now,#2) I share with you card 4 – 6 from the “Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap 2013“:

#5) I will keep on sharing and spreading my love for art, especially postal art. And now that I’ve caught up, I can devot myself to new projects like this one:

My big Star Trek Into Darkness painting 😉
This is the first stage of it (I had to up the contrast in photoshop so you could see the pencil sketch on the canvas; in reality the lines are not as stark as they appear to be in this photo):

Hope to see you around,
