Mail Art Postcard. No. 4554…

But first…
Dulltown, UK: Today’s zebra is the one wearing a J B Lenoir jacket. (J B L)

Well, it seems to be Animal Day on Dave’s blog this morning – what with a zebra in a stylish jacket, and then this magnificent great beast looking out at us, albeit with slightly worried eyes – ah, I’m not surprised you are looking like that mate! Never mind, we’ll be sending David Attenborough round to do a bit of his famous whispering in the undergrowth, and then he’ll cheer you up by shaking you by the hand and possibly giving a few words of reassurance about your future.
Yes, another of my mail art postcards – a simple collage on bright card using clippings from that awful British TV listings magazine, What’s On TV.

There’s not really a great deal to say about this one. Mr Gorilla pretty much speaks for himself.
I wonder why I didn’t create a ragged edge all the way round him – why I left that one straight cut edge? Hm, I don’t know – it does look a bit unbalanced though. Hey ho! Never mind, it’s done now…
By the way, the card is even in colour, not graded in tone as it appears here – It’s just an effect of the lighting when I photographed it. It is quite pleasing though, it gives a feeling of depth to the composition – it seems to make the image stand out from its background – or, perhaps you could see it as the beast peeking at us out of a hole?…
Either way, I think it’s quite a poignant image…
