20 years ago I came upon a stash of Time Magazines circa 1952. These have followed me around long enough. If anyone wants them and is willing to pay the shipping I'll send them to a good home. (in…Continue

"PP, not to worry. We need our curmudgeons. Now more than ever. And I think you're correct in not taking this personally. Richard tries on guises, inhabits them and we get a great show. Richard will now contradict me to complete the circle. "

Richard and Nancy: Together Again

A great honor to receive a card from Richard Canard whose reputation for aphoristic wit rivals Nietzsche in pith, Bierce in ferocity and Henry Gibson for a third thing which escapes me at the moment. I'm not exactly sure what Richard is up to as this is my first Canard (technically then I am unable to say "O that old…See More

Oh gawd, will I ever catch up with my bottomless pile of incoming mail art?  (silence) I'm going to try to blog something every day until my fingers fall off my hands in protest. (I can see the Peanut Gallery assembling to watch that in high def). Anyway, here are two pieces of Alicia's which I…

(Le son d'un suisse clarine est entendu dans la distance. Just setting the mood here.) Janine, sent me this brief but gripping natural history of Vincent Van Gogh from youth to St. Remy. On the envelope a large insect demon which at one time belonged to Van Gogh. Thank you, Janine. I add my…

Sorry David, I updated this image ( http://iuoma-network.ning.com/photo/riffing-sally-mann-candy-cigerettes ) before noticing your comment "Nice Juxtaposition...toxic culture comin' and goin'" ... thanks for the feedback!

Hi David! As always, thank you VERY much for the VERY cool Angie & Snooky postcard. I love it!! I can't help but notice the trojan corgi drawing with the large tongue and you at the helm. Very interesting. Thank you, thank you! Happy Saturday!

perfect background for my underappreciated art--is that all the likes I got?  there goes my confidence back down to poverty level.  the whole piece looks very pretty actually and would look very nice in a frame.  A frame made of garbage.

lol--I know-googling yourself is very weird. my original idea was to create vizpo out of it but it ended up having to be a cut up.  All those things DID turn up, but just didn't fit the black and white theme of the mail art. I believe I saw that speedo pic of you used on an advertising for CanCun Vacations, so you might want to look into that.  We are what google tells us we are

Snap! I just received your belated birthday card! And I thought you were just kidding about sending a belated card, ya know, Cheque's in the mail- type of thing. What a ripsnorter 'bumpy night of Bette with a chin growth' card! Thanks for the gem of a card! No need to blog mine, relax and cross it off the to do list. Although, if you do blog it in 2024, I'll be reminded of what I sent you. Cheers.

Mail-art arrived! Tool-using man/Man using tool. Thank you, David!
