ray's variations

i liked cathy's idea for the ray charles stamp so much, i didn't think i could come up with any idea that i liked as much. my usual way of coming up with ideas is to look at something on the stamp that i can repeat on the envelope. the most obvious thing was the black and orange stacked name. so, i tried the top one and was pretty happy with it. then i tried it in white. it's ok. not spectacular, but ok. the letters in *hills* are all so tall and skinny that they might look better shoved all the way to the left and no wider than the n-a.

  1. You could make hills heavier with a thicker nib, I do like the black envelope though
