Smiles & Smirks

Art with a measure of humour is required by Walmarth Corporation for its chain of supermarkets, located in the Queendom of Retailia and in Cascadia Artpost. Through this collaboration Cascadia Artpost and Mail Art Martha are continuing to give impulse to Trashpo, the artistic vision of Diane Keys.

‘Walmarth Corporation is an entertaining and witty parody of corporate, consumer culture. Cascadia Artpost’s painstaking realization of Mail Art Martha’s ideas through detailed, special effects style models makes Walmarth Corporation one of the crowning achievements of Trashpo in the half-decade that it has been producing a large quantity of art.’

In addition to Trashpo the Corporation has now expanded to include political satire, parody, comics, caricature and witty playfulness.
Your contribution is needed to fill the shelves.

Michael Leigh is such fun...British humour?

Here is a fun "Leap" from Brad Bradford in South Dakota, USA.

I cannot claim full responsibility - some of these images were inspired by drawings in the Sci-Fi Encyclopedia that I have, although I have changed them slightly.  "Leap"  is totally mine - off the top of my head. A new collage from my sketchbook -

Such inventive is absolutely beyond me, much admiration!
