About Me

Hi there! My name is Eli but you can also find me on Instagram and other places under pantlessrobot. I’m a trans guy from Canada and love making mail art. I collage, paint, draw and carve my own rubber stamps.

My art style is usually really colourful but I really admire artists with a dark, gothic style. I love weird animal facts and history. I used to swap ATCs but decided I like letters, postcards and larger types of mail art and swaps better. I made a Kickstarter last year where i sent out collaged postcards, it’s titled “Make 100: Collage Postcards” it’ll give you a pretty good idea of what my art style is like.

When I’m not working (in the library/archives field) or making art, I’m running a soap side hustle with my lovely partner, cycling, gardening, watching documentaries or playing table top role playing games.

I promise I will never flake on you. If you don’t receive something in a timely manner I am more than happy to resend, just pm me.

Things I like

Paper ephemera!: tickets, used postage stamps, stickers, postcards or notecards, patterned paper, patterned paper napkins, die cut paper pieces.

Rubber stamps: hand carved or store bought!

Tea: particularly fruity flavoured black or green teas though I have decided I am not a fan of earl grey tea.


Colours: -Sea colours, blues, greens, teals -Purple -Yellow + grey together -Neons

Themes: * Mushrooms * Space/sci-fi * Animals (all kinds, big or small, creepy or cute) * Comic books * LGBTQ+/pride * Pinups/tasteful nudity * Skulls * Certain flowers, particularly: pansies, peonies, morning glories, clematis, snap dragons, cacti, succulents *** but not roses! (This is actually in my dislike) * Baked good (donuts, cakes, cookies at etc) * Dungeons and Dragons * Circus/freak shows * Horror movies

Things I dislike

  • religious themes (pagany/witchy things or mythology is okay)
  • babies/childrens art motifs (Disney is okay)
  • inspirational quotes ex. “Live laugh love” “believe” etc
  • dieting/fitness
  • roses
  • journal, diary, organizational papers or stickers

Favorite Movies

Spirited Away, The Lord of the Rings, The Watchmen.

Favorite Television

Euphoria, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, The Owl House, Steven Universe, the dark crystal, the x-files, Hannibal, Vikings and various docu-series particularly true crime.

Favorite Crafts

Painting, quilting, collage, stamp carving/Lino cuts, cold process soap making.


May 17 2024: I am very sorry if I have not rated things you have sent me, my partner got very sick in early april and has been in and out of hospital since. Thankfully she is finally on the mend. While I have been keeping ontop of sending things out, I admit I have been very poor at rating things. Very sorry about that. I am currently on a staycation from work and will be catching up on my swaps before the end of next weekend. :)

Comment: Hello Eli, I received your envelope of wonderfullness today!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ I love everything you sent -all the different papers and book pages (those edith holden pages smell very authentic!! I have been looking for her books in every op shop i go into. I love those papers that you have printed/painted yourself.the serviettes, postcards, washi, postcards,tickets, papers for fussycutting. That page about the history of writing is very interesting and the one from the inland waters branch which is actually printed backwards - it looks like an iron on thing for fabric that is printed in reverse so it irons on the correct way -thats very interesting! And the postage stamps are fantastic!! Thankyou for awesome happy mail!! Have a great year of the dragon! 🐲🐉🐲🐉🐲
