Mail Art



Darren at The Little Chimp Society sent me a letter. On the envelope he drew a portrait of me. Pretty damn good. The Chimp is doing a thing on mail art. Of course, I had to participate. I drew the church next to my apartment in New York. Why? I don't know. I just thought it would be a cool envelope. Darren can frame it and stick it in his bathroom. I've done this kind of thing before but even still it's a whole lot of fun.

really cool, Tommy. Love it! And the portrait of you is beautiful. You should have that framed.

oh it's framed. It hangs right under a drawing of a squirrel Yun bought for me.

Cool idea and beautiful drawings.

Now that we have your address, we'll all be out to visit! : )

You post too fast.
I get depressed and fatigued for only a few days, and then i have to catch up with the whole bunch of stuff at once.
I like them all. Your unique approach is fascinating.
It reminds me Of Crumb's illustrations (not so much his comics). But it's still different and really beautiful.

Cheers,

Fun but if you send them in the mail, I'd be scared that it gets lost (like in: stolen) on the way.
A cartoonist friend did send me a letter like that once and I felt lucky that it had gone home safe.

i read where at the height of beatlemainia Ringo would get postcards in the mail from John Lennon or Paul McCartney from wherever they were on vacation and they always got to him. Those I would have stolen.
