I just unearthed a stack of fantastic pages of handwritten experiments. Inspired by my love of ledger art and the many talented artist who participated in the Philpott Lake Project (philpottlakeproject.tumblr.com), I am sending out a new mail art call!So, here is the deal; I will send you a sheet of “the experiment” to alter and send back to me.

Keith--who else would translate the Latin! I knew it had to be something clever. That's a Red Jungle cock on the lunar stamp, I think. It's beautiful.

Keith--your amazing postcard arrived very recently and has been added to my iuoma photo archive. I love the ostrich emerging from the banana. My comment: 'who is slippery as a banana skin and hides his head in the sand'. Love the artist stamp on the reverse--'the provisional bureaucrat' with an empty brain, plus the 'Resist' slogan. Yes we have to stiffen our spines and get our heads out of the sand! Thank you for a thought-provoking card.
