Don’t be a …

My IUOMA-friend “Bear”…

…obviously doesn’t mince matters;
…isn’t afraid to be bold;
…isn’t afraid to be himself;
…expresses himself not worrying if he might offend someone;
…IS ONE BRAVE ARTIST!

“Remember: Don’t Be A ****-HEAD!”

Express yourself. Make some art. And don’t be afraid to share it!

Have a great weekend!

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?

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 ; )

Paint…

Hey,

Today I’m just dropping this piece of mail art for you. I received it from Daniel Qualls aka “BEAR” in South Carolina.

Oddly enough it fits what kept me away from blogging for the past five days: Painting horse jumps. Here is a sneek peek into my current project’s workspace.

Have a great and successful Tuesday : )
