Owney the Postal Mascot
Printed version of my hand painted "Owney Postal Pooch" design.
The #1 of 16 Hand Painted Cover is included in the Smithsonian Postal Museum's "Owney Exhibit".
Using my new "Hi-Def" Printing Methods I decided to create a Second EmPrint Version using the same base artwork but with new type and background artwork... I like them both! I may print one of the first design using my improved print methods just to see if the difference is noticeable.
"Super Tex" A.J. Foyt
Year of the Rabbit
This is a printed version of one of my earlier"EmSketch" Graphite Pencil Drawing Cachets
I always spray my printed covers withe a fixative to protect them from scratching... This black graphite pencil print turned a bluish tint except for the jacket area. Not sure why, maybe the "black" areas of the color scans are turning blue too but not noticable.

"25th Anniversary - AFDCS Chapter 56"
2011 Ronald Reagan
This Anniversary "EmPrint" cover was done for the 25th Anniversary which corresponded with the 2011 TEXPEX show in Dallas, Texas. It was made available at the show where Bart Forbes, the artist that designed the Reagan Stamp signed many of them for buyers.
The original painting and one of the EmPrint covers were matted and framed.
This is now exhibited in the Wineburgh Philatelic Library on the campus of Texas University Dallas - Meeting place for the AFDCS Fred Sawyer Chapter 56.
"I Survived Bob Emrick's Cachet Making Presentation"
This "EmPrint" cover depicts myself presenting
at the TETEXPEX 2011 show... These were "free" handouts to attendees...
The First Day Covers are not 2011 - but the Event was.
