Zurike Mail Art

Zurike is my pseudonym since I was still a college student. Everybody asks me what the meaning of the name is. But, I just randomly mixed up letters that I liked to create the name. So, it doesn’t have any meaning at all. I started using this name for the mail art that I create for my penpal, Molly. He’s also an artist and he’s from Ireland. He doesn’t know I have this blog so I don’t post the mail art that I have received from him. I’ll post the things that he have sent me once I got his permission to upload it on this blog.

I printed a copy of a painting I did 4 years ago and put it on the envelope. I didn’t really have much time to paint then since I was sending 40+ postcards. But I tried to make it look good as possible.

I also got a new penpal from Sweden!

Calligraphy was written using my revived Mickey Mouse fountain pen. Works like a charm!

Vintage Charm.

Shopped for books again when my best friend and I went to Fully Booked. I saw these fabric bound books, as you can see, I wasn’t able to resist!_MG_1530

I finally got the package that I bought from Paper & Ink Arts. Thank you, April for sending this to me! I’ve tried all the inks and I must say that the Old World Ink is probably the best ink that I have tried! I also bought a lot of nibs. I’ll make a review of the products that I have bought once I’ve tried all of it. Screen Shot 2013-01-08 at 11.28.25 AM

Lastly, here’s a teaser photo of the first batch of mail that I got this year. I received this on the first week of January. I will be posting all the mail that I got on the next blog post!
