youve got mail

when i was young the act of receiving something in the mail was met with excitement and optimism, now as i grow older its becoming more of a chore when most mornings im met with bank statements and bills, but an artist and illustrator by the name jainai jeffries has started a fight back against the monotony of collecting your morning post with these beautiful creations.


each one hand drawn and lovingly created in incredible detail to bring something special back into receiving mail.


in an age where digital media is speeding everything up, where everything you create can be visible to the world in seconds, its amazing to see someone take a step backwards and take the time to create something that initially is intended to be viewed by a select number of people. ironically though, now you will all see them via the exact engine that is killing the art of letter writing.


each of the images should link through to the artists deviantart profile, if it doesn't here is the link
and here is the link to their portfolio
and here is the link to their blog

on a side note if you think that digital media is taking over the world at an alarming rate and would like to take a look back, you might want to check out a friends site called letters of note, here, its a collection of fascinating letters, postcards, telegrams, faxes and memos. most revealing a different side to celebrities and public figures.

hope you enjoyed this post, maybe you should leave a comment, or even send me a letter.
