The Crying of Lot 49?

Have any of you read The Crying of Lot 49 by Thomas Pynchon? I've recently read it, and have been creating a sizeable amount of art based on it. It is very related to mail, specifically unofficial…Continue

The Crying of Lot 49?

Have any of you read The Crying of Lot 49 by Thomas Pynchon? I've recently read it, and have been creating a sizeable amount of art based on it. It is very related to mail, specifically unofficial mail  carrier organizations within the US. A good read for anyone interested in postmodern lit or mail-related arts. Anyway, If any of you have read it, please send me a message and I will send some art your way. I'd also be very open to discussing the book with anyone who desires that. See More

LIGMA, thanks so much for the card -- I've never seen the "Don't hug me, I'm scared" films you refer to--I'll be sure to look them up--they're probably on Youtube(?). I love the grey teeth guy--he does look pretty scared, but I'll bet he's anxious about everything, not just his teeth. and the overalls with the hairy chest are a real fashion statement! I'll get something out to you soon.

LIGMA, I'm so glad you had such a positive experience at the Black Mountain retreat! I love the little zine you sent me, especially "My room was a sad little room." It reminds me very much of the experience I have at the Pt. Townsend Writer's Conference every summer. Thanks for the painting, too! I hope you keep doing mail art--I'll send you something soon.

LIGMA I'm so glad to hear from you again -- what a great card, beautiful painting of "Helen." I do love both postage stamps, the Apollo Soyuz 1975 is spectacular, as is the "Willie and Joe" 1943 cartoon stamp. I've never seen that one before. The "Photo of Me" is a LIGMA special! Unique and wonderful. Thank you so much for thinking of me. I'm a little bit behind but I'll get something out to you before too long! Happy Spring!

LIGMA I love the block print you sent me and the two-faced kitty is definitely the weirdest thing I've gotten in the mail so far. I love it. There is a marvelous poem by Laura Gilpin about a two-headed calf--if you want I'll send it to you.

Black Mountain Retreat

Posted on May 26, 2016 at 7:27pm 3 Comments

I am currently on an art retreat to the second location of Black Mountain College in the mountains of North Carolina! This place, though I've never been here before, is incredibly important to me. Though the building is original and in tact, the entire facility is now a YMCA, which is incredibly unsettling to me, as I am not a fan of the Y as a corporate organization. Regardless, I'm having a pretty wonderful time, and will hopefully complete a lot of work in the following 6 days! If…

Thoughts about Exchanges

Posted on February 27, 2016 at 4:53am 3 Comments

To be honest, it makes me so stressed to post a scan or photo of the art that you all send me. This does not in any way indicate that I don't appreciate the art. Because I love it. So much. This community makes me so happy, and I adore being a part of it. However, in the future I think I'll cherish the art en seule and that way have more time to create and less time spent on trying to keep up with the amount of art I've been sent. Hopefully, everyone is alright with this. If anyone has a…
