Mark Powell’s extraordinary Bic Biro pen drawings are done on vintage envelopes dating as far back as 1819 – this one a 1965 fold-over airmail.  The London-based artist has endless facility for communicating the history of these craggy, elderly faces, in all their folds and wrinkles.  Such beautiful work. Bic Biro on 1903 German envelope.

1848 envelope.
