This is a quick one– just a “love at first instagram” kind of thing. These are the opaque watercolour or gouache paintings of Lucy Halcomb, an illustrator, graphic web designer and Brooklyn-based “pen pal”. Her instagram account is a record of her outgoing mail (lucky recipients), on which she paints little nostalgic pop culture artworks. Is it the fact that they’re painted on pretty pastel envelopes, or the perfect attention to detail and patience attributed to painting such tiny everyday subjects? But I’m not sure Lucy is taking herself too seriously, so let’s just proceed and enjoy her instagram art folly…
