Secret Stash: Friends, Lovers, And Family On Envelopes


It’s the third Thursday of the month, and time for me to post a selection from My Secret Stash– sketchbook drawings, comics roughs, reference photos, and other marginal stuff– on Patreon.

This month it’s a selection of decorated envelopes from five decades of correspondence, specifically portraits of those near and dear- friends, lovers and family I’ve known over the years (as opposed to portraits of celebrity strangers, which are a lot more numerous). Who knows, YOU may even be one of them:

Because I found so many envelopes in my archives, I’m posting half of them this month and the rest at some future time.

Membership has its privileges; all Secret Stash material is viewable by Patreon sponsors at the $4.99 level and above.

And while you’re there, check out previous Secret Stashes- NSFW envelopes, Kaleidoscopic collages, and 1970s flyers from Portland’s Storefront Theater, and the free stuff- new comics stories featuring Snow Angel, a sketchbook comic from 1974 featuring Piggola, and all-rhyming comic about yard sales.
