The February Mail Project!
I am a man of my word, (sometimes) and in an effort to combat my delicate bruised ego I attempted to write a letter/card each mailday in February. I’m not so good at math, but I think I did ok.
I am a huge fan of postcards. (Mostly from Las Vegas, it would appear.) You don’t have to be intimidated by a big blank sheet of paper because you only have so much space. It’s like analog Twitter. Plus, you can make your own postcard out of the inside of a box of pancake mix. (Second row, fourth column.) And, vintage cards are readily available. (Second row, first column.) If you’re a big art nerd and you go to galleries all the time you can grab the mailouts for the featured artist and write a tiny little note around the undoubtedly long-winded, pretentious, completely full of shit, artist statement on the back (All of row five.) Or, with some white label paper, you can make a more sizable writing area for yourself, should you be particularly wordy. Here’s a few pieces of the mail that I got back in return:
In my lifetime I may see the dismantling of the US Postal Service, and that’s a huge bummer. It’s way harder to make someone excited about an E-card.
(I’m still exchanging letters, hate mail, love poems, test prints, and grocery lists with both friends and strangers. If you want in, tell me here: firstname.lastname@example.org.)
