I made a run of test prints from my geology book stencils. I thought I would experiment with metallic and glow in the dark inks, with the former more or less working and the latter more or less leaving me with four days of neck pain from pushing down so hard on the squeegee. (There is no glow in the dark ink in the final test prints.)
Because these types test prints often turn out better than my final pieces, I like to mail them. So I cut down the sheets into a large edition of postcards and sent them out to the usual suspects last week. This gesture of goodwill generated a bit of feedback, which expressed various degrees of incredulity.
“This anonymous person who just sent us some art in the mail started to address it to my old apartment, then x’d it out, and then sent it to our current apartment.”
“It had me a bit freaked out.”
“Thanks, but put my name next time!”
Anyway, you can see the edition of 6 here on my postcard page, where my official goal is 100 postcards by 2013.
