Thx BG!

Beating the confinement blues, this is great time for collabs!

Kristine Snodgrass (Florida, USA) & I are doing an extended collab series,  part snail mail and part internet. Not all of it will turn up on AF2 so I'll share some of the results here hoping anyone else who wants to do asemic vispo collabs will jump in with starters, whatever.

I've been very fortunate to be able to put together an Asemic Front 2 post of FAB vispo (solo) by an old friend to many of us here: Alicia Starr Ryan (formerly of Iowa now of New Jersey, USA).

Alicia Starr Ryan exchanged mail and participated in vispo & asemic projects during that IUOMA vispo Golden Age with Cheryl Penn and others. Alicia is still making art and doing well.

I think this recent work is breakthrough stuff! Deepest thanks to Alicia Starr Ryan.

Thank you, NBS. Julie is a real find. She's in the FB mail art groups on FB but hasn't made the move to IUOMA Ning yet.

Julie is also the spokesmodel for my Fake DK pieces.

These by you and Julie are downright beautiful, DVS.

Asemic Front 2 collabs by Julie VanBortel Matevish (Rochester, NY, USA) & De Villo Sloan (me). The foundation is an inkblot by Julie VanBo. "Rorschach Vispo" was popularized some years ago by Cheryl Penn (South Africa) here at IUOMA-Ning.
