You've got mail! And no, not those pesky spam emails, but beautiful, hand-painted envelopes by Lucy Halcomb. The Brooklyn-based illustrator uses gouache to adorn brightly-hued paper products which she then sends to lucky recipients. Lucy chronicles her delightful creations on her Instagram called @lucy_mail. Some of my favorites are below.

Art Venti
Art Venti is a California based artist who creates large scale works on paper in a variety of media, primarily color pencils, watercolor markers and watercolor. He classifies some of his compositions as "pencil paintings".

His subjects can perhaps be considered imaginary realism, representing swirls and curves of paper-like bands, twisted gossamer draperies and diaphanous semi-organic structures, suspended in space and projected into atmospheric depths.

These are painstakingly rendered, often over the course of several months, with attention to textural surfaces and the quality of light illuminating the complex suspended objects, and passing through translucent areas.
