EDM #140: An Envelope


This is the kind of mail I would prefer not to receive. I'm sure you all know what it is. And where it's headed.

I dig this interpretation of the challenge. It tells a story: from pre-crumpled to post-crumpled...and the shadow is slightly more uncrumpled than the actual envelope. Through the subtle matching of the shadow color with the 'offer' text, it evokes the spectre of some kind of unwanted resurrection...like it is a monster that will haunt you again and again.

I'll bet that was a fun one to draw with all those wrinkles and folds. Great work!
