First Efforts

I illustrated my first envelope in 2010 in response to a mail art call:

Mailed to Australia July 19, 2010



I joined Postcrossing at about the same time with the idea of drawing the postcards I sent out, but I lacked confidence in my drawing abilities, and ended up drawing only one postcard that year:


Postcrossing postcard mailed to Taiwan on Aug. 10, 2010


I also learned about etegami through DosankoDebbie's Etegami Notebook, and drew my first etegami:


Mailed to Japan Aug., 2010


I illustrated two more envelopes in 2010:


A ripoff from Nick Bantock's Griffin & Sabine.  Mailed Dec. 7, 2010


The address labels are collaged. Mailed Dec. 24, 2010
