The first envelope where the postal marking has gone over the drawing, but then that's hardly surprising since I got a bit carried away with this one and drew over the whole envelope in black biro.
Although this isn't my best or favourite drawing, I've always quite liked biro for drawing. Even though it's not as dark or smooth as other pens, I can appreciate the spontaneous and unpretentious quality of biro. For many years I was in an unhappy and quite resentful place about drawing (don't even ask why, I'm not sure now) and the only drawings I could bear to do were quick biro plans in my sketchbook.
