Mail Art.

This is my submission for the Associação de Gravura da Amadora (postcard) mail art call. The theme was A Day Like This. I used this existing plate which I adapted, printed and embroidered. I posted it to Portugal ten days ago, and I do hope that it will not go missing as did my previous two attempts at mail art (one to the UK and one to the US)!

A Day Like This (drypoint etching with embroidery).

PS This etching is in preparation of a series which I have been planning for some time now, reflecting on the events at Marikana on 16 August 2012.  I have been delaying starting to work on it properly, perhaps because the subject is controversial, tragic and depressing.
