Communication Breakdown


One day the in the middle of an email the computer stopped working and despite all the troubleshooting attempted, Sally never brought it back to life. She couldn't communicate with other bloggers, after that, she went back to writing and exchanging letters through the mail.

This is in response to the weekly challenge "Communication" at Illustration Friday.

My favorite way to keep in touch is by snail-mail. I love choosing the right card for whoever will get it, and I LOVE decorating the envelope! I think they'd have to take me away if I were forced to send a plain envelope. The best part is how the receiver feels when they open the mailbox. Just a very small way to brighten someone's day :)

Crickets are good luck until they try to get lucky. Then they make a cheap cheap cheap sound that drives my squeeze up the wall. Anyway, have you tried mail art? I encountered this dude in cyberspace named kiyotei who is into organizing mail art projects. Take a look at his website.

Great illustration and story!
Sally- maybe you can do that chain trade-up thing- starting with like a paperclip, and finally trading up to a new computer.

Really sharp design, and I like the little history with this piece. Sally's probably better off.

I haven't commented on this yet? I admired it yesterday or the day before. I'm very fond of the crickets and circuitry, and your colors are very zen-like (unsurprisingly so :) ).

hwax- thanks! Yes, I'd agree ; )
