lion model by Philippe Charron

 Anthropomorphic Mail Art Project!

 We've got another good one from Philippe!

 Look at all that careful shading and line work - you guys! That's not easy!
 She is very serious about her painting.
 So, my question is - did the lion just murder that bison and sit on it?
Maybe the bison is taking a nap.

 The bison continues on to the back!
Thank you Philippe - your art work is lovely. :)

Taco Tuesday

Now that I'm looking at this again, I think the goat needs glasses.

happy bday wolf

Check out those Muppet stickers!
My friend Jen knows how to tickle my heart strings. 
She sent me a birthday postcard ... with Anthropomorphic Mail Art, of course!
And she says she broke out her finest purple ink for me.
I believe her!

baseball wolf by Philippe Charron

Anthropomorphic Mail Art Project!

 The stamps are the balls!
 A slight uniform modification to accommodate a giant, fluffy tail.

 The tiny little hat - so cute!
Of course there is a baseball stamp on the back.

Thanks, Philippe!

matchy matchy Monday - "fresh new kicks...

And pants. Grab a fly girl cuz you know you wanna dance."

Ok, that's enough MC Hammer. Just kidding, there's NEVER enough MC Hammer.

Anyway, I just wanted to I am, matching all my things to my shoes. I like lime green and neon yellow together.
It's like a citrus slap in the face.
Pretty much the same reason why I eat grapefruit for breakfast.

In other news, my birthday present to myself came a bit early...surprise!...
it's this beautiful, shiny, bright pen.

wolf farmer by Philippe Charron

Anthropomorphic Mail Art Project!

 I don't know if I'd let a wolf shave a sheep. Maybe he is just preparing dinner.

 Lamb postage!
 Sheep postage that blends into the background, tree line, and horizon line.
 The look on the sheep's face gets me every time. And the skinny little legs.
A thousand thank-yous to Philippe!

ink and ice cream ... the zine

I started a new zine and it's about how much I love fountain pens and ink.
Probably no one will read it, except maybe my fountain pen pals, and that's okay.
How much of an intersection between the worlds of fountain pen lovers and zine lovers could there be?
(It might be just me.)

Here's a picture of part of the first issue. I decided on a letter size flat zine format, with a stapled-in sample of some scribbles done with the featured ink. Each issue will feature a different ink, and I'll have to stop making them when I run out of different inks to showcase. Hah. As if that would ever happen!
Assuming that I (someday) buy all the bottles of ink I plan to acquire, I can always buy or swap ink samples to continue featuring new inks. So, yeah, I have a plan for that, even though it will be years before I actually have to deal with it.
Anyway -HOORAY - I made a thing!
Happy October!
