  • Art trades? Mail art?

    So I'm thinking that we should set up a list of people who are up for participating in an ongoing "project" like this. People within this list can just PM each other when they feel like sending something to someone. We can share our mailing addresses that way. Then we post what we receive in this thread, never post what you make though. Anyone else in?

    DA LIST!

        I would be in if I was actually active with my art. I haven't done anything in nearly 10 months.

          See, this might actually be the kick in the pants I need to try some things that have been going around in my head for awhile.

              But, that's what I plan to do (if I do this at all). A series of novellas. If I ever have the nerve, I mean (the thought of actually putting anything down on paper--and someone else READING it!!!--scares the shit out of me).

              Otherwise, I can't participate because I have no creative talent whatsoever. I can't play an instrument, I don't even have good handwriting much less draw, and I'm tone deaf.

                why? it's art, right? i am just not sure how you will fit it on a postcard .


















                i am sure the rules are not going to be that strict.

                      There's way to make it visually interesting. I would love to receive short stories and such things. This just seems like a good reason for us to work on such things. Can I add you guys to the list?

                        put me on there, nothing like a little motivation to do something different & interesting.

                        my writing looks like this, but my lines aren't that straight.

                        i'm not artistic, i'm autistic

                          why would you need to make it visually interesting? it is already an artistic expression of the creator. albeit in a medium that is not normally treated as such. just my $.02.

                            I agree completely. I was just saying that there's always things to add on top of writing if they didn't to just want to go with sending stories. It's all good. Sending photos that somehow represent places in the story or doing things like making paper looked aged are always cool touches.
