Junk Mail Art

Do you get a lot of junk mail? I sure do. I don’t mean SPAM…we all get that. I mean the good old fashioned snail mail variety. Credit card offers. Magazine offers. Services I never even knew existed.

What a waste of paper! It’s occurred to me that it can be re-purposed for good. To make someone (or some mechanical sorting device) have a brighter day! NOTE: I am not saying it’s a good idea to use the return postage paid envelopes…even though that’s a really funny thought.

I created a new flickr JUNK MAIL ART group, if you want to join in the fun.

I submitted these for ArtScape, too. Here’s the pen.

That’s all you need. And an idea or two. Post yours with mine on Flickr.
