overview of Asemic Shadows with Cheryl PennCheryl Penn is an artist living in South Africa. See her book arts at THIS BLOG

We have exchanged mail art and have done a collaborative book together once before. This time Cheryl mailed six original 3.5 x 2.5 inch sections of a painting she did, along with a color photo of the original full sized painting. I scanned the six painted pieces and digitally dissected the color photo to create more page images for our book. Then I added my linear pictoglyphs, using her paintings as inspiration.

 

I inkjet printed nine of these, sprayed with UV protective coating, added varying collage elements, and different cord colors and beads to secure the book shut for storage. It was a real pleasure to work with Cheryl Penn’s painting for my fourth collaborative accordian book. Another version of my own glyph accordian book is available on ETSY (click here if interested).

includes visual poetry items and occasionally jewelry items I make.

I enjoy making little books and artistamps, but those get distributed via snail mail to other mailartists.
Often I will gift the jewelry to friends and family, so jewelry does not remain on Etsy for long.
