The Art of Mirriam Neal

//from me to you, because I love you (no, seriously, I have stuff for you)

Who doesn’t love getting mail? I’m not talking the usual collection of bills, promotions, and junk – I’m talking about real letters, handwritten by friends. Even getting a post card is enough to fix a bad day. Mail is fun – and mail with surprises tucked inside are even better! I have amazing blog readers, and for the past few months I’ve been mulling over what I can do to thank you for your continued companionship. It struck me this morning as I organized my desk and straightened my stationary – everybody loves letters. Everybody loves art. (In my experience, at least. Even the darkest supervillain lurking in his black and craggy lair loves art.)

if saruman had received more letters, he would have been a happier wizard.

Where am I going with this? I’ve decided to send out a sketch – nothing fancy or large, but something like what I’d enjoy receiving – to a different blog reader each week. I’ll choose a reader each week based on their comments. (It’s also a good incentive for me to keep sketching, even on days I don’t feel like it!) I’ll announce the winner each Saturday and include my email so you can send me your mailing address. If the chosen reader is not comfortable giving me their email address (which is perfectly understandable), I’ll choose someone else.

THE REQUIREMENTS

  • You must be a regular commenter (obviously – I can’t choose if you don’t comment!)
  • You must be subscribed to Wishful Thinking
  • And…that’s it!

I’m pretty jazzed about this – and if you see an envelope with a wax seal show up at your house, it’s probably from me.
