Darren Di Lieto, the guy behind the illustration news portal the Little Chimp Society and the portfolio site Hire An Illustrator! is currently running a project called Mail Me Art. In it, artists around the world draw and paint original art on envelopes or packages, and then send them directly to Darren through the mail. The image above is my contribution for it. It was drawn with ballpoint pen, watercolor, and white gesso on a 6″x9″ yellow envelope.
This is actually Darren’s second go-around for Mail Me Art. In its first year, the project resulted in the publication of the book Mail Me Art: Going Postal with the World’s Best Illustrators and Designers and an exhibition, held in London.
