Ana Kawajira: Space Invader arrives in Paris - We'll actually it never left

Ana (Paris 12eme) sent me this Space Invader which is cut out of a paper sheet.  A new trend?  In Paris we see these Space Invaders in office windows made out of post-its.  Many companies have "asked" employees to remove them from their windows as it did not give a good image of the company.  Hence the phrase; Those who live by the post-its, die by the post-its.   Post-its is a trade mark of 3M.  Whose share price today on the NASDAQ is $88.39 but is likely to hit over $96.00 by the end of…

The Day of the Dead is coming .....

Soon the Hallowed season will fill the streets with ghoulish figures and offerings of food, rum and merriment. Why not stop and think of some of the other celebrations and be a part of the new Planet Dada project, The Vodou Lwa! - More details at http://ning.it/R06Iiz

A DK, Dean Dimension, featuring Test Tower, Ana and Kat.

A very chumpy envo from DK! It was open down the side, hope nothing was nicked from it along the way? Is it all there Diane? I love the big VIS even if it's the wrong spelling! And the nauseous envelope improved with stinkin' trash. And the DKULT cross is genius on the Welcome envo, but my allowance must have fallen out...…

Blogjam: Hot Seat from Claudia McGill, Minxus Mail from Claire Dinsmore, and Trashpo etc from Vizma!!!!

I'm in love with the color palette Claudia uses. It's hard to read from the scan but it says" when they said I'd be in the hot seat in my new job, I certainly didn't envision this."  she also writes on the back, "Thanks to you I will NEVER forget to use the zip code again.."  Jon Foster had touched on the inevitable paranoia that can creep in when we exchange mail art and communication stops. This happened to me with Claudia as I hadn't heard from her in awhile. I thought maybe sending her…

Received from Gilberte Vermeulen, Belgium--A Rose is a Rose is a Rose

Merci beaucoup, Gilberte, for this lovely original flower painting--something I have no skill at. I like how the brushstrokes are natural, not forced--and no signs of thorns…

"Authentic" by Svenja Wahl.Germany.10.11.12

An "authentic" ATC; compressed cardboard and printed photo...loved the aged look!

A fantastic postcard; a magazine photo with some sort of waxy crayon/pencil?? over the top to subdue the shine of the paper...could also be sanded, due to the gouging....awesome effect!…
