Analogue Notes

Analogue Notes is my 2020 community art project.  It’s designed to encourage handwritten correspondence via a handmade work of art.

The General Idea

Draw a picture or create a hand-lettered piece.  I will turn it into a cyanotype postcard, and return it to you with a stamp ready to mail. You add a handwritten note to someone special along with their address and you (or I) can drop it in the mail .

It’s also a collaboration.  Together we will celebrate the long tradition of handwritten  correspondence send through the mail on a piece of art.

How to Participate

To participate, email (ironically) a scanned or photographed line drawing that you make to

The line drawing should be made on white paper (copy paper would work perfect) using a black marker.  Markers will produce smooth, graphic lines which will translate better as a cyanotype print.

Within 10 days, I will print the drawing as a cyanotype and have it ready for pick-up at the my Hillsdale County Farmers Market stall.

The price for each postcard is $3 and includes a postage stamp already adhered to the card.

A Community Exhibition of Analogue Notes

This project will conclude with a fall public exhibition of the Analogue Notes produced between July 1st and August 31st.  The exhibition location will be announced at a later date.
