Mail art from Peg McCaskey

A wonderful package from Peg today. A couple of ATC tri-jams for me to take part in. A nice little haul of american quarters to add to my state quarter collection map folder I just need to unstick them from the paper to add them to the folder and to mark them from my list in my profile, lol. Also a nice handmade card with a matching atc for my collection.

I do love getting fun things in the mail, it really does make me happy.…

Saving the US Postal System

I may be violating a IUOMA policy here but I think it's important for people to realize that the forces of darkness are once again trying to privatize our Postal System, widely regarded as one of America's proudest achievements for a wide variety of reasons.

Check out this paper from In The Public Interest and then consider writing a letter to these…

Asemic writing (and more)

In a Covid-19-free world, I would have been at a print and book summer school at the Centre for Fine Print Research in the University of the West of England right now. That was all cancelled but they've arranged an online festival which is helping to make up for that. One of the artists' talks is on ASEMIC WRITING, by Steven J Fowler. The talk's on YouTube here:…

Prosthetic Faces For A Forest of Freedom: Wait, What?

Whether standing on one foot or hopping sideways on a tightrope drawn taut between any two second story window. Riding side saddle on a sea star horse head on any planet asteroid or space debris object. Still I will make a mail artist out of you. I will do this, that and then I will snake a veiled smart ass doubt the dew as well; all this and then, walls. Tape. Fences borders more and more walls. Green walls purple walls walls of squishy slimy balls enthralled walls but still,… Continue

A slow parrot

This great envelope from Katerina took a very long time to get here due to the pandemic. For a while the Greek post office was not accepting any items to send to the USA (although I could send to Greece). It hasn't been exactly speedy since resuming, either. This colorful envelope was postmarked in May, and arrived in July.

Landscape Beautification Project

For a long time, I've been altering vintage postcards, usually fairly boring ones, with the addition of a piece of art. I have a lot of fun finding just the right piece, with the right angle, to set into the landscape. This is one I did last fall. I'd popped it into a storage drawer, forgot about it, and am now sending it out. Finally, in 2020.    Can you spot the addition? …
