100th Postcard!

Last December, I started a mail art project where I make, and mail, hand-drawn postcards. They are available through my website for $10 each. Today, I am mailing out my 100th card, called "Rocketship 1956". This card is a homage to both the popular fiction and the midcentury modern design style of the 1950s.

My summer residency at the National Water Centre

Connected to societal collapse and the disintegration of language, Paul sees a growing abstraction from nature. Having spent equal portions of his childhood outdoors and in front of the TV, he surmises: “Nature is very popular—in the media. Everyone like pictures of nature. But you put those same people in [nature] and they shrink from it….My nature comes to me served up by Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom or David Attenborough, and it’s entirely educational, but it’s also sanitized”.
