I've always LOVED your trashbook idea and your trashbooks/trashpo etc. Am thinking about trashbooks because my art is getting tense and I can't untense it (maybe it's the times...) -- also because they're a blast.

Great summary of Dean's art, Diane. Didn't Kat post a blog of a recent piece of his? Maybe he's inching back in. Very tempting to send him something nuts despite his declared retirement.

Comment by DianeKeys on January 20, 2020 at 5:14pm

Where is Dean these days Kat? his art always so polished yet wonderfully absurd

I mean, where is it?

"Trash vortex" is a mind-blower. Oh the dizziness.

The avocado is a mystery ... ?

Comment by Mail Art Martha on January 14, 2020 at 12:58pm

Oh the very ripe avocado, just how I like them. Some crushed garlic and olive oil. Mmmm!

You did not throw it away?

Contributing to the recycling of junk...namely doing TrashPo,

are these two large face tissue box creations that recently arrived in Greece,

one from the famous Artist-in-Seine, in Paris:

and the Llama from Finnbadger in Ohio :-)
