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.


  1. Good stuff!

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

  3. I love this! I want to use this idea with my high school kids

  4. @nicholas If you do, send us pictures. We'd love to see what your class comes up with.

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

  6. these are so it.

  7. it's so crazy. i love it.

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