john neal big blue

i ordered some supplies from john and sent him a check. this is a lesson in layering. i wrote the name once with a bullet marker (fat round tip) it was blah, so i went over it with a wider blue marker, either brush or chisel, making the strokes rather squared at the ends. then i added shades. then i looked for stamps and used the red and black on the stamp to direct the address. it is not an award winner, but, it is pleasant. also, a lesson in scale. make the name as big as possible and the address as small as possible. going to extremes is a quick and easy way to punch up an envelope.
