Making mailart every day since December 1st, 2010!

Mailart 365 has moved

Thanks for visiting Mailart 365. This site is an archive of mailart produced by artists doing mailart 365 from December 2010 to August 2016. As of July 2016, we moved to a new and more modern site at Come on over and check us out there


120 - Tekkon


The lips came from a spectacles leaflet that we had delivered to our old house in bulk. In the communal area, these leaflets would pile up, so I took them to use them for repeat patterns. I already miss getting loads of the same leaflet delivered.

The main image is from the front cover of Tekkon Kinkreet by Taiyo Matsumoto. I wanted to experiment with colouring in, something I'm not very good at. I find I don't have the eye to see the subtleties of colour in skin tone, and always tend to colour the whole thing in one flat colour. This time I paid special attention to the tones and it worked out ok, but I still need more patience.


Yay! You're drawing is coming right along Andy. I'm so pleased to see you doing it.

Thanks JJ! I'm still doing a lot of tracing, but I have been drawing a bit lately too. I particularly love drawing Usagi Yojimbo, I'm getting better.

By the way I never said thanks for The Arrival. It's great. What an artist!

Gasp. I just found out that they're showing Tekkon in the Barbican. But we're going to be away in October :-(
