Postcard sent to my Austin buddy, Tucker Max, former notorious author and Founder of Scribe Media. I went to UT for college, so Austin has always had a big chunk of my heart, even though I’ve haven’t lived there in decades.
Postcard sent to author, blogger and activist, Cory Doctorow.
Postcard sent to Mark Blyth, Scots expat, Professor of Political Economy at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. This is a replacement card for the other one that got lost somehow. Sic transit gloria mundi.
Handmade postcard sent to Martin Gram, a very old and dear friend living in Copenhagen. A Danish photographer, we first met London in the early 1990s, and he was pretty much my best friend when I lived in New York.
This was an old memory from Japonica in Greenwich Village, New York, circa 2013. Funny how totally random moments never leave you.
Anothere handmade postcard sent to Elspeth Murray, the Scottish poet.
It’s a line I’ve used before, but it seemed like an idea Elspeth would really relate to, so I sent it along. Sometimes I do that- find an idea I really like, and try to find new ways to play with it. All artists do this.
Scottish Project #030 just arrived in Glasgow. A wee bit of damage top left corner, but that’s normal.
Hand-drawn postcard sent to Christ Chirnside, in Trinity, Edinburgh.
Chris was a regular at the bar I used to work at as a student. We became friends; we’re still in touch, 35 years later.
Another hand-drawn postcard landed in Scotland, this time #028, sent to Susie Verden-Anderson, an old school chum. They all seem to get marked with this orange stripe in transit- I’m guessing that’s a UK postal thing, not a US Mail thing.
Kinda sums up a lot of conversations I had while living out in LA, California. More to do with the people I was hanging out with, than the city as a whole.
