Wonderful colored pencil & stamps, handmade, hand-illustrated owl, gnome, and pysanky aerogram by Minneapolis Gnome of MN.

I also got a typed note on McDonald's bag-bottom. a compelling personal account typed onto a Subway sandwich wrapper + kool art! I love it all.

And just above, two West Virginia Centennial stamps. What I think may be a leg-depiction is more vivid than shown. I don't think the scanner picked up the neon orange.

I love it when a collaboration happens spontaneously. I recently received an envelope which I had sent to CRACKERJACK. He had added to it and sent it back to me with some more mail art. What a wonderful surprise.

From Alan Turner, a mail artist I have known for a long time and who keeps away from technology so has not joined IUOMA on line.
