Mail Me Art Project



A little while ago I took part in the "Mail Me Art Project".
It's a cool project where artists mail in an envelope that IS the art. The art is on the outside! I always have loved to dress up letters and packages. Although, when I send out my artwork to buyers I usually forgo the artistry on the packaging because I don't want anything to slow down the packages arrival through the post office :) I leave all the fun stuff for the inside in those packages.

I decided I'd make my envelope a painting of Little Red Riding Hood with Mr. Wolf. They are holding up a sign with the mailing address on it :) I thought it was pretty cool when they chose my art to use in a blog post about the event. You can see it HERE.

Everyone's envelope art is going to be shown in an art show in London England. You can keep up with the festivities on their facebook page.

I have my fingers crossed that they will add mine to the MAIL ME ART BOOK. I will keep you posted if they do!

HUGS TO ALL!

Ooooh, what a cute idea! At the most I use a couple of stickers on special-occasion cards, but that's really it - I should really get more creative :P

What a great idea! I love your piece and I'm sure it will be included!

My husband's a postmaster and he mentioned, once, that he's noticed some great art going through the mail on envelopes. How fun!

Tascha!

I LOVE Mail Art!!

I've sent out my own decorated envelopes and received several pieces so far from other artists (I mention it under the "Mail Art" label on my blog).

Glad yours arrived in one piece and didn't get lost!
