Mail Art: Works on Paper and Envelopes

I think my favorite part of mail art is being able to have pen pals across a language barrier. You are communicating with people, sending them greetings and content, in images. These are mail art exchanges I have sent out on envelopes. I like to put a matching artwork on paper inside when I have the time to make a set.

One mail art trader is trying to make and exchange a bird image a day for the entire year, so I sent her this pen and ink with colored pencil art.
