Now, this is AMAZING (because it finally arrived). If I read the postal cancellation correctly, it is stamped December 9, 2010...read backwards, or right to left: 2010-12-09? Oh dear, South Africa and Greece have to wait once-a-month post, while Germany gets mail art before I can return from the post office! sigh...Such is life in our World/Town! Well, the wait is so well worth it! This is Cheryl at her best...wonderfully layers and elegant textures of "rice paper" and hand-made pulp…Continue

'Tis amazing how quickly we can communicate via "snail mail" between Germany and Greece. It shows how "very well organized" they are, and that they are "doing a very good job" at what they do (both postal services...plus the 5-10 daily flights direct to Thessaloniki helps, I am sure!) Well, on this the last day of the old year, it is so appropriate to receive this happy haptic package fro Herr Erni! Needs much study and reflections, and wondrous images appear and then too, many questions…Continue
Last year, at the end of 2009 going into 2010, Banana Man was very active here at IUOMA. And I do miss his photographic "portraits" and other "bananamania". So it was with happy surprise that this very "Haptic" card arrived on this very last day of 2010. Many elements have been recycled from other mail artists, and the entire piece is a rare collection and reminder of dear mail art friends. Thank you, Wolfgang!
(and see, the mail service is sooooo quick from (Dortmund) Germany, too!…Continue

Argh. I've really fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to postal art. I let myself get caught up in little whirlpools of activity, and I never could quite escape. But now as I sit here, recovering from wisdom teeth surgery, I am making another New Years' Resolution - This time I am participating in the Mail Art 365, starting on January 1st.
This will help me focus on using the mail…Continue

There is a lot of movement in this piece, as if Laurence has captured this figure on the fly. The figure's expression seems heroic and mischievous at the same time. Laurence painted over a photograph and the effects are energizing.
Take a look at…Continue

I've received some great stuff lately but, having temporarily lost access to the scanner, I can't put anything up. But I'd just like to say thanks to Cheryl Penn for her beautiful book and to Angie, yes I've finally received the Alexander book. I'm in the process of sending the rest of mine out so, everyone will have theirs in the New Year. Those that haven't already received them anyway.
Happy New Year all!

Here is a tag from Arttower featuring one of the heads from his Head Project. He also sent a post card with him in front of one of the Head Project paintings.

Snooky Dog (ATC) came along for the ride and brought me this beauty from Angie
When open, it has that wonderful "SEE THROUGH" element that brings us to a "KOSMOS"
of twirling worlds and delicate threads.
The textured "cover" is…Continue
As of today, with the arival of No.12, I now have a collection of 4 "365"ers. Amazing is the fact that, without any set theme by the group, still these four cards are "butterflies" and flowers and blossoms, in cold WINTER! (Well, ok, I "added" the butterfly over Jennie Hinchcliff's "X", but butterflies abound!) Upper RIGHT is 2/365 from Rani, lower right is 3/365 from…Continue
