Beautiful Mailer

Who knew sending letters could be so beautiful? Lovely atmospheric photo by Juergen Teller for Royal Mail in i-D magazine.

My Solo Show

After several very busy weeks, my solo show at Exposure Gallery (upstairs at Thyme & Again in Ottawa, Ontario Canada) officially opened at the vernissage last Thursday, April 12. Called If You're Afraid of Butter, Use Cream (a quote from the immortal Julia Child) the show has a food theme. Take a virtual tour of the show in today's Atelier post on my automatism blog here.

The News So Far

So my brilliant plan to work on the BPS book over the next couple of months has been put on hold — I've been offered a solo show at a local gallery, but turns out the only available time slot is April. This means I'll be frantically getting an entire show ready — with no time for anything else, sadly. I hope to get back to the book in the spring — I will keep you posted on how things progress.

Hope all is well with you all!!

The Language of Stamps

You have to see this lovely and wonderfully illustrated post on the blog Poemas del río Wang on the now-vanished delicate art of stamp placement. Depending on how you placed a stamp on an envelope, it told an informed recipient you sent a kiss, you were thinking of them — or (sadly) that you were not free. Fascinating — and something it would be charming to revive for Valentine's Day, I think.
