this week i made a number of fun mail pieces! the first set of images shows a package i put together for my good friend magdalyn. it's a little archie grand journal (love 'em!), a vintage article by group of seven painter arthur lismer and a letter on old school hilroy style paper. again, thank-you heffel auction catalogues!
the second set of images show a creepy xmas card i found at work. but the cool thing about it is that it's an actual silkscreen print! on the back i cut out an image advertising an upcoming art gallery of alberta exhibition. i wish i lived near this friend so that we could check it out together. the only problem with this postcard is...i forgot to put the address on it and then i misplaced it so now i have to find it before i can mail it! oopsie.
the third set is one of my favourite pieces that i have made to date. ira hoffecker is a victoria artist i admire (i posted about her here) and her work has been in just about every local magazine lately. so i took advantage of that and cut out all of the images, dissected the piece and interspersed awesome quotes about her paintings. i then mailed it to her and it made for a nice little surprise!
p.s. QUESTION! what colour is this font?? please leave me a comment telling me what colour it is, and what colour my links are (see above). thanks!!
