3 gekkos

I am much behind in replying to my received mail art!.. So each time that I'm sending out mail I feel happy (and relieved / less guilty). These three geckos took several weeks to a month to create. That is, the geckos themselves (or: 'no geckos', the outside lines :-) ) I drew within some minutes. However, to make the rest I had to find and use every spare minute available. In the waiting room at the dentist, while waiting at appointments, while driving in or waiting for the bus, metro, train, etcetera.
So, finally these are on their way. Coincidentally I've sent the three of them to the USA: to Keith, Phillip and Jack respectively.

Deze hermelijn is geïnspireerd door Ti Ar Raden, die me een faux postage postzegel stuurde waar een hermelijn op stond ('erminig' in het Bretons, weer wat geleerd!).

This hermelijn (or Stoat in English) I created for Ti Ar Raden. Ti Ar inspired me to do so by sending me an artistamp showing an erminig.

Air and earth mail

I drew a few pieces like this two-and-half years ago. I know the date because I scanned these in 2012, in October and November respectively. But to be honest, I don't remember to whom I've sent them!..
At least I know I've sent one to Ryosuke Cohen in Japan and he used it for his Brain Cell project. But the others? Lost in the post, or lost in the house, somewhere between my files and piles of paper?...

Time will tell :-)
