Moth Woman Mail Art

Ever the optimist, I’m still imagining and imaging a brave new order in which the Moth Woman Vigilantes* take us under their collective wing. (It couldn’t be any worse than what we have now).

Step 1: Designing new sets of Mothstralian postage stamps, the first of which is previewed here.

Coscinocera Hercules Moth Woman, 2009, acrylic on canvas, 25 x 30 cm)

The "stamps" were constructed by combining my artwork with the iPad apps Face on Stamps, Square Ready and Strip Design.
