What does one do for mail art when the ink in the colour printer runs out and their artistic abilities begins and ends with strategically gluing paper stuffs together?
Well, this week I had a crack at drawing ghosts!
As I cannot draw freeform (even my stick people depress me) I used the internets to locate simple pictures and tried my best to replicate those images onto envelopes I'd made using photocopies of ghost stories. Then I pulled out the watercolours and not knowing how to use a paintbrush correctly, applied the paint using a sponge instead.

I received a letter from Laura in New South Wales at the start of the week and she told me about the ghost tour she took recently at Q(uarantine) Station in Manly. This is how the idea to put ghosts on my outgoing mail for this week came about.

And Ulrika in Sweden is intrigued by the unknowns and the what-ifs too...

Whilst Dora in New Zealand says she likes "the paranormal", which I hope includes this silly little ghostie.
Simple, yes, but I like the overall result. What do you think?
