MaoMao

I'm just a cat that can read and write.

Paper, stamps, calligraphy, wax seals, inks, ephemera, maps, storytelling, luscious paint, printmaking, and little illustrations in the margins...I love them so much that I could eat them.

Literature major, bookbinder, embroiderer, ailurophile, sketchbook filler, collector of languages, shoestring vagabond (Beware! I have three passports, and I know how to use them...)

An eye for an eye.

I'm still looking for my mail ART soulmate.

I invest plenty of energy, earnestness, and effort in mail art. I know it's supposed to be non-precious, a rejection of bourgeois aesthetics, dada, punk, anti-beauty anti-art...but I can't help myself. If I'm going to do anything, I prefer to send stuff that is made from scratch, with care, by hand. I often spend a whole day on one piece...

That said, if you send a quick piece of craft store scrapbooking ready-mades, you will receive the same.

But send me an eye, by god, and you will get an eye. *winks*

I am kind of new to this website. I sent you a friend request. Would you like to exchange some mail art? Making art is part of me and I'm prolific....so mailing it to someone is a good outlet for me.

Hey Maomao,

Greetings from a sunny spring day here in Idaho.  Hoping this finds you very well in Australia. I was hoping to see you in the mail but not sure if you ever sent me anything.  “No worries”, as they are famous for saying in Australia.  I’ll just send you another little something.  Cheers, Debra

Oh I love that, finding the thrill even after 20 years! Sounds like you're compatible in a unique way of long absences. Boy, your hearts must be really fond by now!

The stitching might be trickier on a walk....

"Hello MomKat! Now how did that get there so fast? Just when I think I understand the way Australia Post works, they move the goalposts. :) So glad it got to you in record time. I actually felt sheepish sending you something blue, and that…"

Personals Ad by Allen Ginsberg

[I love that in this original version of the poem, there was an address at the bottom, and it was Allen Ginsberg's personal postal address. I sometimes wonder if this post box still exists, or if they had to cancel it because the new owners keep getting mail from people touched by Ginsberg's poetry?]

"I will send a picture, too
