Get your very own mail art from Ralph Thomas!
When I returned from my mid-July vacation, this lovely mail art surprise awaited me. Of course I had to check out his website, so thoughtfully listed on the card at www.ralphthomas.com, and learned that he's doing a postcard-a-day project. He's sending one postcard of his own mail art every day for a year, and he's only in his second or third month now.
He says of his project, "I will change my postcard design each month. I draw them by hand (sloppiness and flaws included) then silk screen the design onto cut out cereal boxes. The theme is 'stuff every kid wishes he could order from a cereal box'. I have no real purpose for doing this except maybe I get tired of computer graphics and just need to make stuff the old-fashioned way."
If you visit his website, you'll see that he's actively seeking folks to whom to send a card, and I secured his permission to blog about it: he'd be delighted to have you lovely blog readers sign up to receive your very own postcard. Again, you can see his info at ralphthomas.com.
The little octopus is my fave detail...
