I was very surprised to find spontaneous mail in the post last month. Philippe creates incredible works of art on envelopes based on the stamp. He came across one of my envelopes to Eric B, and sent me this beauty.
Philippe's note was written on a postcard one of his pen friends had made from one of his envelopes.
And Philippe's signature stamp on the back.
I love the stamphead! I always want to do that, but I don't dare with the stamp of the king in Morocco... It could be misunderstood!ReplyDelete
True! But who would know if you put them in a posting box with no return address?Delete
For a lot of fun stamp head ATCs take a look at a challenge at Mail Me Some Art from earlier this year:
Maybe nobody would notice. Just "maybe", because in a little city like this one, with a low rate of international mail "everybody" knows my letters :DDelete
Things work in a different way in this country, it's long to explain... But I can try from Spain, sure.
Thanks for the link. Some amazing works!
I am sure they (the postal service) do have some idea that a lot of the interesting international mail is from you. I think we all develop our own signature style, although every now and again we break out of that and try something different.Delete
Yes, send them from Spain!
What a beauty indeed. Phillipe C always creates wonderful pieces of mail art. I m glad if I played a small role in this.ReplyDelete
I think you played a big part in this - if we weren't exchanging mail, and you weren't blogging about it, Philippe would never have sent me anything. One of the great things about the internet is making connections - so thank you again.Delete
WOW! What a beauty -- very nice Stamp head.ReplyDelete
Philippe's work is amazing.Delete
Wow, also from me.ReplyDelete
Such a beautiful drawing to Dumas' stamp!
Philippe is so talented - he can draw like this, and then of course his abstract work is amazing as well,Delete
