Figured I would start this topic to see who else appreciated envelope art in the 90's and to see if anyone else has any old envelope art they created that they would like to share with everyone. Yesterday one of my very old and best friends sent me a text just saying "as requested" I then replied with a what? He sent me a picture of a letter I mailed him in 1993. I live in IL and always have he also did until about 1992 he moved to FL a few years later he ended up moving back to IL. While he was there we would write back and forth and I would always send him envelope art. In this particular letter I wrote "How do you like the envelope? I drew it myself. Please save it." I was 14 then now I'm 37. He actually saved the letter and envelope he said it was sealed in plastic and put away in a box all these years and he found it a few days ago. Here is what the envelope looked like I smeared out the old address for apparent reasons on the photo. If you have any envelope art or childhood stories regarding envelope art please feel free to share I would love to see it.

Its one skill I wish I had. I remember being in elementary school and a classmate could draw comic book characters. I sent in a few envelopes to Nintendo Power back in the day, but nothing ever came from it.

Don't take it as a knock on your artistic ability. I'm a pretty decent artist but neither Nintendo Power nor EGM saw fit to print any of my envelope art either.
