A handwritten letter can bring a smile to one's face, but this envelope art by British Mark Powell may likely cause an even larger grin upon the receiver's face. From the fragile texture of the envelopes, to the grainy effects of the pen, to the subjects Mark chooses, Powell's talent for detail shines through quite clear.

Mark Powell scribbles each portrait carefully on a used envelope using only an everyday Bic Biro pen. His subjects, which are usually elderly men, seem to take quite well to the ink medium. The artwork can be found on his website and many of these pieces are for sale.
