My Website:
http://dagdoodles.blogspot.com
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I created a steady stream of handmade postcards from 1985 until 2002, mostly under the pseudonyms of Blackbeard and DAG. Mail art 'zines such as Beatniks from Space, MalLife, and Outre provided my inspiration back in the 1980s.

I love writing to friends, acquaintances, and total strangers. I love to create conversation pieces with my own two hands.

Hi David, just came across your interesting message and am compelled to respond.

Well, today you qualify as a tested veteran of the Golden Age of Zines due in part to the simple fact that you somehow have managed to survive and can thus provide a presence and testimonial here in the New Order of things.

I think you just had some bad beginner's luck. BFS and Neither/Nor was an anarchist press w/ an agenda and group of people they wanted to promote. I believe they ran into money and labor problems and ceased to function. At the same time, a big small press guide featured them and I think they were buried in submissions they could never hope to publish.

Factsheet 5 - great publication - was another high visibility piece and Gunderloy would use you if you fit his purposes, but there was hardly an open or fair editorial policy there. Don't get me wrong. FF5 was important served an important function.

There were SO many zines. You probably had work appear places and you didn't know it. But the primary approach, even during the zines, was direct one-on-one w/people. So you probably did better than you think.

And now you're here to tell your own story. You should. We're all trying to patch together what actually happened back then.

Regards. DVS

Wow! Two cards from you on the same fabulous day! I must be living right! I love the blue and yellow painted image that looks like a skull to me although sort of a silly one, not spooky at all. If it's not a skull and is intended to be a portrait of your aunt Drusilda, I apologize. Anyway, I like it a lot. And of course the bunny is fantastic. I love the ID of "Hi! I'm an ear!" just in case there was any doubt. I think this is the first bunny anyone has sent me so I'm very pleased with it. Thanks for palling up with me!
