Handwritten Postcards

You have seen some artist trading cards I made that incorporated my new handwriting.

And you’ve seen some postcards.

I f you wonder what I am talking about regarding “new handwriting”, look here.

Anyway, here are some more postcards. I painted the background in acrylics and then I wrote on them. The handwriting is not meant to mean anything – it’s just collections of words and phrases I heard as I watched TV.

    Claudia, I missed your post about postcards. I am a person who writes handwritten letters and postcards. I would LOVE to purchase your Cards when I get paid. I will follow your other link. Was so tickled to See this email that I quickly responded.

    Have a Super weekend!

    Thank you. They are easy to do and very relaxing for my brain to just blurt out any old thing in my head. I like the look of print and handwriting and I like doing it, so…next thing you know, now it’s on mail art…

    Thank you. I read about how in the past, to save paper, people would reuse letters written to them and cross the previous lines. A little hard to read but very effective use of resources, I always thought, and I really enjoy the tangled patterns you can make doing this as in this postcard you mention. Try it, you will enjoy it, there is something very relaxing about it.

    That handwriting project is paying off big. And I like writing more and more. Amazing, since I’ve spent years, decades, disliking the look of my handwriting!

    No, I don’t know these. Oh dear! I will fill my pages, I’ll send a couple, with the minutia of my life hoping to express it in a nice way. And use water proof ink so that you can cut up anything I write for possible inclusion in a collage of yours!

    Thanks Claudia. I have an idea that I will try to get down on paper tomorrow…and I’ll try to find a link to one of Robert’s letter poems.

    OK. this will be fun! I’m looking forward to exercising my pen in an excuse for wordiness that does not have to make a lot of sense, but look nice!

    This is incredibly relaxing to do. And it uses any surface – so that a “failed” image can get a new life, in fact, I think it works best when there is nothing to lose as far as what I am writing on. Just get that pen and go. I do recommend a waterproof pen or one meant to write on various surfaces (try Jet Pens website, you will go nuts)
