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.

They vanished for a while around here too but now readily available in most places.  Got two bags of flour from the Co-op last week.  Made a quiche. Hazel made some muffins.  I have added a few more pounds!

Great ads Michael! I had heard that Trump and our own BoJo have both important collections of these cards. Now I know why.

I cannot understand why everybody seem to have too much time in their hands. I get up at 5.30 or so, go to bed at 11 plus and never finish all I wanted to do in the day.
