Waiting for AJ and BH - building friends
Mikel's envelope reads as both buildings and people, to me and the feeling with the yellow envelope is exhuberant, or listless and even slightly jarring. It's fascinating to see how the portrait direction also makes it feel expansive. On the other hand, three figures versus a crowd on the white background helps to demonstrate how much fun we can have with hand carved stamps and letters and how totally differently they can speak to us. These are beautiful pieces. Thank you, Mikel, and sorry it has taken me such a long time to get them into the world!
