Below is another example of the effects Adam Roussopoulos has been achieving with repetitive stamping on envelopes (see also Bradford's photos). This piece has a retro-70s geometric design with a shifting op art quality (squint).  In addition, on the right hand side, you'll notice a mailart clue:

"WHO KNEW MICHAEL VOODOO?" (see below for a reductive answer)

Michael VooDoo was a prolific mid-1980s to 90s(?) mail artist/collagist situated in Lake Park, FL.

Here is something that might be of interest to this group.  It arrived a couple of weeks ago and I know nothing more than what you see; nor do I need to.  Whether it is an on-going project or just an anomaly I don't really care; I have done one and sent it back and it would be nice if everyone else did too.  It is the sort of meaningless nonsense that mail art used to thrive on and as such means everything.  Let the mail infest Mr J F's welcome mat as thickly as the fungi depicted on them . . .

Such a fun rubber stamped envelope from Jean. Great use of the oreo stamp too.

An envelope decorated with cut-outs and an Ellsworth Kelly forever stamp. One can't tell at first glance, but this is a recycled, postage-paid business envelope. I love her primary colors with secondary touches of greens and purples.

Thom Courcelle envelope featuring members of the Andean Alliance, a République du Coeur artistamp (w/ beautiful divine childe), Repeal of the Stamp Act, 1766 Forever stamp, a magickal sigil that you should definitely stare at for as long as you can, and fantastic first class and bunny eraser stamps on the back (not pictured here).
