mail and my baby girl

Although all of my friends rule, this post is mainly about Amber Esner and the Making Mail Documentary (directed by Mike Polk) that stars her, a few pals, and other mail makers around the US .  With any project Amber does whether it’s painting, drawing, graphic design, paper art…she impresses me every time.   We’ve been best friends for 15 years and to see what she does now overwhelms me.  The drive that she has daily to make something is so inspiring.   I just love her so much.

A crew of us went to the Cleveland showing of Making Mail.  It was pretty rad there was a full bar, best friends everywhere, mail art exhibit, some zines, bands, and a showing of the film Making Mail.  The whole thing was super sweet.  It was about artists from all around the world that construct/make/write/craft mail.  Not only was Amber in it but so was Carly BartelCara Mullinary, and BUNNY MAY.  I’m not kidding, I was sobbing like a baby because I was so proud of Amber- then my dog is on the big screen blinking – I thought I was having a heart attack.  The director Mike Polk is a sweet dude and his crew, great job! For real!
