A Drawn Moment in Time

There is something absurdly creative about Bill Mayer's sketches. He took postal stamps of historical figures and sketched scenes around them, capturing the personality of the subject with simple strokes. Call it a fringe event, but I was so engaged in each one, that the remainder of the open white space drew itself further in my mind. Kinda freaky really.

Incredibly clever! Makes me want to go out and buy some old stamps at a tagsale!

So rad, I thoroughly enjoyed all of those. Especially the one with the whole decapitation thing happening.

This work makes me think Saul Steinberg's slightly degenerate twin got a hold of my stamp collection. Fun.
