stamps!



one of the most creative people that i know has drawn some stamps that were released by the danish post office last week. jens hage is a political cartoonist whose work appears in several major danish newspapers and i used to take him to my workshops to draw concepts for us. he is one of the most brilliantly inspiring and funny people i know. and i am giddy about these stamps. they make me so happy! i'm putting them on all my postcrossing cards these days and it really makes me smile.

EDITED: i just ran onto the caricature jens did of me in late 2006 and i had to share it as well. jens is probably best known for his caricatures. and i really love this one. simple lines capture so much life.

this reminds me of my childhood hobby, philately. i used to have pen friends from a few countries and i would look forward to the stamps on their letters.

Thanks for introducing me to this artist - he's wonderful! Do I see a guy making yellow snow there?

The cartoon of you is a treasure. I'm so glad he understood that you have very long, long lashes and a big warm smile.
