GX Jupitter-Larsen (2)

The same envelope by Ruud Janssen appears to be a source of various interpretations. GX made them. I already was spoiled by beautiful animal stamps, and am happy to see many more of them. Thank you, GX Jupitter-Larsen!

Micu (2)

Micu from Hungary has send me a beautiful Fish, which is a surprisingly piece of recycling art.
Cardboard and plastics are common materials to recycle into mail art. But this is the very first time that I see medicine packaging turned into art!

Depending on the direction from which the light comes and the amount of light, this fish is changing colours, exact as happens when the fish is swimming in the sea:

Thank you very much, Micu!

For the ones who would like to create mail art (not from pill packagings specificly), and who don't know where to send to: check Micu's great project Mail a Smile.

For the ones who are interested in the recycling art creating process and/or need more ideas: check her recent blog on this subject! In case you don't use pills and don't know anyone who uses them, there are several other sources, like bubblegum packaging, etcetera.
