Mail Art 365 Skull

This was a post card sent to Noah's mom, Mim for the Mail Art 365 Project, by Camel O'Rama. They described it as, a "hand cut stencil attached to wallpaper - cut to 4x5" & sent in the mail".



The use of layers and texture helps define the skull works well with a mostly light colored palette. The use of negative space is delicate and creative in the depiction of a skull. Since the scale of this is so small, the time it took to cut the stencil must have been immense. Overall, it's a beautiful piece that would be a treat for anyone to receive in the mail.
