Received from Julian Grant, USA

love the feel of the shipping tape over the black and white stamps

Reconstructed street scene becomes an allegory for man's attempt to balance/control urban sprawl? I like to run my hand across the cut-up photo pieces just for the feel of it. There's also an illegible line of writing at the bottom of the page which my scanner did not pick up. What…

The World is a Town

Sir Erni sent me a Gift

Well I tried to scan it but didn't come out. Erni made this wonderful assemblage box for me. It has the Erni trademark bright colors. He gets his green and yellow by inserting a sponge in the box. It goes on like that. In the box is a cut out statement "Karmic Management". Also "Lost in Repression?...just control yourself". HE even sent along candy for me to eat while I'm looking at it. What a friend you are Erni....Thank you! Oh yeah, is Grigori with you?

Received MA - Elke Grundmann (Germany) - Danke!



Long overdue on posting this. So sorry, Elke. Got put in a different folder. EG is an artist whose work continues to facinate me. Her assemblages and typographic desconstructions are quite enigmatic and I do recommend seeking out her posted work.…

Tokyo snail being pernickety. Or moody. Or something...

Do my postcards look like envelopes?

I've send this postcard to Art who leaves in a neighboring area in Tokyo, putting 70 yen of postage instead of the 50 required for domestic postcards. He got it with a note from the post asking him to pay the 10 yen that are missing within 10 days (10yen=0.1UDS).

Wot?

Maybe they thought it was a letter, for which I should have put 80 yen of postage, but the reason they give it that it was too heavy, which it is definitely not.

Why they… Continue
