Pretty posts

Lucy Halcomb takes snail mail to whole new eye-catching level by transforming everyday envelopes into beautiful works of art. The New York-based illustrator hand-paints each envelope with gouache and then pops it in the post to brighten someone’s mailbox or mat. Even though her favorite thing is figure drawing from life, when it comes to decorating her envelopes Lucy likes to illustrate food and food packaging the most. Thankfully, you don’t need to wait for the postman to bring you a letter from Lucy to see her delicious designs.
