If You Are New Here: This project started (January 2015) with me sewing junk-mail faces onto a big woollen blanket. It has since expanded to include images from magazines and leaflets, I find in bins and on public transport. ‘Uninvited’ was the working title, until I changed it to ‘Mostly Uninvited’. Unless I tell you otherwise, take it that the portrait was part of some junk mail, pushed through my letterbox. I will always credit photographers, illustrators, designers and the faces, whenever possible. All of my work is numbered, this is 632. If you search this number in ‘Categories’, you can find out about the other faces.

A Card For Teacher

AlisonSye157b

A couple of years ago I made thirty-seven (I think) cards from ‘My Visit To The Dinosaurs’ (first published in 1969, this edition 1972) by Aliki. It had lived a thousand lives and was no stranger to sellotape.

I wrote six blog posts about the making of these cards. You can read the posts here, here, here, here, here and here.

There are six cards left. They can be found in the ‘Cards For Teachers’ section of my shop. As usual, they are made from used food packaging and stuff, and come with sewn envelopes.
