Mail/Art Global Collaborative

Two of the many pieces submitted through the Mail/Art Global Collective to the ABC No Rio Gallery 'Ides of March' mailart exhibit in New York this past March. The two pieces above were started by me as shown. Mailed to collab member Stephanie Cormier, then to Tara de la Garza and sent off to the gallery by mail for the exhibit.

Below are the results.

Posted to David Berube "Portrait" MailArt Call

Sent to David Berube's mailart call for a portrait in exchange for one of his 'Face A Day' pieces.
This one done the morning I awoke in the hospital July 24th 2005 after having surgery to repair damages caused by four stab wounds. It's along story and I'm done with telling it as of posting this piece.
