Awesome idea!


also, piyama in spanish... piyamas for the plural. you should do a drawing of a pair of slippers (that´s pantuflas or chinelas in spanish), they totally kick piyamas´asses! i would surely tattoo that on my skin.

Marc Johns

Piyamas! I like it. Thanks for the Spanish lesson!

This is great, Marc!

I actually save security envelopes too, and use them to draw on. I love the intricate patterns and am fascinated at the variety of the patterns. I always think I have seen every pattern, and the *poof* in comes another credit card application.

I wonder what the credit card company's marketing firms would think about me saving the envelope, but pitching the contents?

That thought makes me happy.


Very nice post and I love your idea so much and thank you for your great work
by the way,the image is funny

oil paintings

Very nice work. I love that you recycled an envelope your electric bill came in to create this very nice illustration. An interesting way to used mixed media in your art.
