Welcome to Episode 17 of Stationery Orbit where we are all here to learn more about creative letter writing, I’m your host John West and today’s episode is a discussion with a remarkable artist. He is an author of a multitude of art books and he has two softcover books available. We will be talking about how drafting and cartography merge into art; and how to use rubber stamps to trigger creative ideas.
Please welcome, Timothy Ely!
You can find his two softcover books on Amazon and they are:
Flight into Egypt
and 8 Books
You can commission new works, and find reproduction prints on his website A Planetary Collage
