I've got a few more excellent Superhero post cards to share with you today, as well as an invitation to share a story next week.
Here's Care's superhero:
and one from Carroll:
this one from Christie:
and this one from Tameko:
and now for the invitation:
Every superhero has an origin story - how they got their superpowers, and what led them to a life of fighting evil.
Artists have origin stories too, though they don't usually involve a radioactive spider.
Still, wouldn't it be fun to share them with each other?
I confess, this isn't my idea.
Joanne was recently musing about her influences and how she got started in mail art, and suggested we all share our stories. I thought this was a fabulous idea, and so....
Next Monday, November 18th, I will host a "Mail Art Monday", for the first time in months.
The theme will be origin stories.
If you've got a blog, I'd love it if you'd write a post about your mail art origins.
I'll have a Mr. Linky tool to make it easy for you to share.
If you don't have a blog, we'd still love to hear your story. You can write in the comments on next Monday's post. (don't share them in these comments - we want them all in one place next week!)
What made you want to drop a piece of hand made art into a mailbox?
What was the first thing you sent?
What was the first thing you received?
Who introduced you to the concept?
Who inspired/influenced you?
Spread the word. You don't need to be an MMSA swapper to participate.
Tell us your stories next Monday.
We really want to hear them.
