1998: Getting A-Head

The age of MS Publisher

Click for the gallery of 1998 stamps

This year I began  using a computer and a scanner to take my other original artwork and turn them into stamp pieces. I also started playing around with MS Publisher, finding that I really like this program in general, but especially to make stamps. I also did several commemorative issues that were released in conjunction with some U.S. Stamps. These were mailed with a special cover that had both the valid US stamp  and the matching Artistamp.

Basically, you can see some of the original  pieces in the gallery of this site. This is the beginning of my stamp ‘heads.’ The idea of having just a head in the stamp and the rest of the image as the selvage around the stamp. You will see more of these in the coming years.
