A Neighbor With A Moleskin

A neighbor of mine offered to take my outgoing mail to the post office recently and with that mail was Steve's moleskin. Instead of taking them to the post office he just used his own stamps and the ever trustworthy method of weighing by hand. Anywho...the thing was returned yesterday with "insufficient postage." So I am sorry Willie but the moleskin is just leaving Pennsylvania now.

The only good thing about this is that I had neglected to scan in my drawings in Steve's moleskin. So here they are now:

WOW! Very cool! Super work. The detail on that guys hair on the top right is amazing and I love all the little people and the guy with the flyswatter! And the beast he is after. Such expressiveness!

he makes his own stamps?! ah, the old weighing by hand method is fine providing you don't use the dominant side.
I like the two pages of characters.

That monster is actually Steve's I just thought I would interact with it. His creatures are great.

Thanks for your comments.

Ian...yeah you know the old,"I think this thing will take three stamps but lets put four on just to be safe." Well he was a solid 2 stamps off. What a guy.

Hahahha I love mailing packages with stamps, instead of going to the post office, but I have a scale at work, so I don't have to leave it to guesswork (although that is fun too).

Which reminds me, I was joking with my mother-in-law about mailing a leaf to her in Palm Beach, from Seattle, just using sharpie to write the address on, and affixing some stamps. I wonder if it would show up, or just disappear, or be returned to me...? The experiment must be done.

Two semesters ago I had a drawing class where the teacher gave us postcard assignments over fall break and Thanksgiving break. One of the ladies in the class sent a corn cob through the mail with husk and all. It was pretty brown by the time it make it to the professor. I think the leaf idea would be great.

oooh these are fantastic.. love the guy with the fly swatter!

I wonder if you write the address on the back of a stamp and send just the stamp.... :o/

I love your interaction with the monster.

Sorry I got confused. :-(

LOL! A fly swatter is an interesting interaction!!!

Let us know how the leaf experiment works.

The stamp would prolly get lost. Is someone trying that? It would fall out and get trampled.

The post office these days has a corncob up its @$$ (scuse my language) and isn't as user friendly as it used to be.
