Again an envelope to Ryosuke Cohen in Japan to insure that in return I will get a Brain Cell for the TAM Archive. Last version I received was #1009, so the collection grows and grows
Also two envelopes to Heleen de Vaan with a minimalistic address notation. Will see if they get there. The zipcode should reveil the city (Amstelveen), and the sipcode also reveils that the street is a P.O. Box, and therefore the number 581 should be enough. Will the PostNL be clever enough? I think so.
For some graphics on Internet I developed a specific sequence:
- Make a drawing with Indian Ink on thick paper and let it dry
- Put some St. Petersburg Watercolours over the image and let it dry
- Make a digital photo of the result
- Guide it through a Roy Lichtenstein application to set the forms and tones like Roy would have done it.
The results are now on some Facebook groups as a banner, and to archive these works I have posted a few here as well.
Ryosuke Cohen has been doing his Brain Cells since 1985, and this year the 1000th issue is expected. I estimate that I have about 400-500 of his Brain Cells in the TAM Archive, including that very first one also. Today I decided to write him a letter and use the typewriter for that.
Because Ryosuke always chooses an image for including on his Brain Cell I always make sure he has a lot to choose from on the enveloppe. The traditional envelopes are made as I print stamps from the TAM Archive on a regular basis to send the collection back into the network in a printed form.
