See that collage above? That’s an example of the terrific work that the mail artist, Chloe McHenry, creates. You can find her work on Instagram (parcel.tongue) by clicking on the image below:

I’m endlessly fascinated with artists and creatives. And in this instance on the podcast, I talk with Chloe about how she started creating mail art, her experiences with being a penpal on Reddit, and how she pays attention to details that end up in her art.

That detail was in proof when I was lucky enough to get postcard art from Chloe. You’ll hear us talk about this postcard and how there are layered details in this postcard that featured the Zodiac Killer on the front.

Hey, did you listen for the word of the day on the Postcardist podcast?
