Bay Area Book Arts Jam and mail art
I decided not to show my work at the Bay Area Book Arts Jam this year in October. It is THE best place to show them, and the most exciting. But, that's what tires me out too much. I can't run on adrenalin and high spirits any more. What I'll miss the most is the meeting one on one with book art enthusiasts.
Soon I"ll be back to posting more here and showing my newest things and talking about techniques again. I'll be showing more work locally as well. Recently I've been working a lot on mail art. Maybe it's the Nick Bantock show coming up that has kicked off my interest again. I am finding post card size gives an artist a large enough canvas to work on and there are so many things one can do one them. I've been altering vintage post cards and creating other mail art. I have been enjoying this book from Amazon.
