New year, New challenge!

Happy 2014 readers!

A few years ago, Elena and I started a little project called Mailart 365, with the aim of making and sending 365 pieces of mailart in a year. That was the year we got married and after about 150 pieces each, we got sidetracked/went on honeymoon. By that time, the project had more than 20 other artists creating 365s on it, so I took my pleasure in watching the others completing their projects.

After 2 and a half years, I limped in with my final 365 piece and it felt great to have got to that magical number, even after all that time. I carried on the numbering to #462 but have decided that, having become creatively a little stale recently, it was time to do this properly. So this year I’m restarting my numbering at 1 again and I’ll aim to do it in a year. Meanwhile Elena is going to restart hers, this time to focus on watercolour.

Our first pieces have just gone up on the Mailart 365 website (Elena | Andy) and I’ll be posting them here occasionally too. Cheer us on!
