eduardo munez mail art

Back in January, I found out about the Who Is Eduardo Munez project. The idea of writing to a person whose character is formed with each letter really intrigued me.

After a few weeks of brainstorming, I settled on the idea of Eduardo receiving a letter from someone he'd met on a trip. The envelope would illustrate a conversation they had had. Inside the envelope would be something that had to be returned to Eduardo. I'll let you know what was put inside once the project finishes.

I used De Atramentis document inks on vintage typewriter paper and added acrylics to the sail boat to bring it into the foreground. A bit of yellow De Atramentis document ink over the acrylics sails added color as well.

What projects have you been working on or just finished? I have several works in progress that I hope to finish next!
