365: Oldlibraryman #87, #88, and #89

Wednesday, March 30, 2016


I made these envelopes and the three previous postcards at a Saturday workshop sponsored by the Book Arts Studio of the University of Utah. They have several workshops that are free "drop in and print." activities. These are all gelli plate prints.

365: Oldlibraryman #82 and #83

Friday, March 18, 2016


Two more lunch break efforts. I did these on Wednesday. I haven't done these kinds of angle shadings since I was in Mr. Cornaby's high school art I class in 1961. It gives the surface a nice touch of visual rhythm. I miss ol' Floyd Cornaby. He was my mentor through four years of high school art and an adviser and critic for a couple of years of my university art adventures. I stayed in touch with him for over 35 years and was able to introduce my first grandson to him before he died at age 93. Good memories of great times.

365: Oldlibraryman #79, #80, and #81

Friday, March 18, 2016



I made these three envelopes with strips of a single page from a decorating magazine during my lunch break on Tuesday. I added other bits and pieces to them when I had a minute or two. I must have a bit of Expressionism in me, because I can't stand to have shapes not outlined with black or some dark color. I refrained on the first one of these, but it was hard.

31 - Usagi returns

Sunday, March 13, 2016

We recently had a mailart 365 reunion at our house with andytgeezer,  Elena, stripygoose and positively postal. At the end of the night,  positively postal left a rubber stamp at our house. Luckily, he also left the enemies that it was originally sent to him in, complete with address and unused stamp. Hurray for those times when the postman doesn't cancel the postage.

A quick Usagi later and it was back in the post

365: Oldlibraryman #61

Wednesday, March 02, 2016
I have been doing a lot of experimentation with the last seven envelopes. I will probably do a lot more of the same kind of things for a while. Even if I repeat a pattern or two, each one will be different in the details. I might try a few Panamanian mola patterns, or African kente cloth, or Australian Aborigines designs. I love those bold, "primitive" patterns. I don't think it is possible for me to make 365 one-of-a-kind envelops or postcards, and I don't think that is a requirement anyway. I am going to do a few postcards next week.
