Kind of sad to see a year end but I'm certainly looking forward to 2011 thanks in part to all my IUOMA friends. It's great getting and giving! Here's my pile of out going ... the last for 2010. I sent out over 200 pieces last year.
Michalis, Diane, Marguerite, Sharondipity, Marie, Paula,…Continue
Camel O'Rama designed one of his revolving tags, completed one side, then sent it to Paula Smith, who completed the other side. Then the tag was sent to me. Thanks it's great!Continue

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

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

'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
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.…Continue

Check this out! Is this awesome, or what? Received a CD in the mail from Sweden. It wasn't in an envelope, it wasn't in a wrapper, it was just a loose CD sent through the mail!
It doesn't have a name attached to it but I recall the piece he sent Karen Champlin and just…Continue
Thank you very much for this Michalis. This is quite stunning!
That is the front and back of the envelope from Max. A very cool panther stamp? stencil? painting?
Inside are all these add and pass projects. Hmmm. Putting my thinking cap on ...
