I printed a batch of these postcards with this image I snapped in the Keys.
Driftwood in the sand that looked mysteriously like a seahorse. I inverted the colors so it looked like a seahorse in space. :) Thought this image was super appropriate for the "Transformative" mail art call.
"A house becomes a face, a picture of a cheesy pizza becomes a cloud, a cloud becomes a dragon."
I created the above artistamp for the below mail art call. MAIL ART INVITE:

Nick Bantockrecently posted onFaceBook that
his "studio is stuffed to the gunnels with drawings,
prints, collages, paintings, faux mail, dubious documents, and 3D pieces."
He wants to get these pieces out of his studio and into the world.
I'm currently looking into what's available and it would make
me uber happy to have a Nick Bantock original.
