Almost first blog since 2014 (except for Sharon Silverman 2019) -- thanks, IUOMA, for still being here

From top down. Left: Renee "Motherbrando"; Jan Hodgman. Middle: Heide Monster, and 2 from Petrolpetal. Right: Samantha Price, Rebecca Guyver, and David Stafford. Friends, I wish I could blog everything like in the old days, but being at least half-luddite (and getting worse, haha) prevents it, as well as having the slowest + most infuriating scanner…

Sharon Silverman's 50 MAILART BOOKS project -- WOW

Above and beyond "documentation"! This is a jaw-dropping gift. 

Sharon's project is here: http://iuoma-network.ning.com/events/50-mailart-books. She is working on what she calls a "small library" of mailart books, and she pairs each of the 10 pieces you send her with a work of her own.…

Blogjam: Jon Foster, Dorina Harangus, fake fine art, Petrolpetal, and Richard Baudet

Many thanks to Jon, Dorina, and fake fine art:

By the way, Jon, that's one of my favorites from you!

Front of fake fine art's great trashpop card:  Thanks to Petrolpetal too for these gems (really got a kick out of your "full" envelope with the…

Carina's "Constellations" -- a boekie of charming sketches

Carina's boekie enchants me. All about color + shape, it is simplicity backed by a sophisticated artistic mind. I tried to stop scanning, but here's what happened:…

Petrolpetal, with more originals

This survived all the way from South Africa with the little pouch of treasures still tucked in its envelope pocket: This is the most recent of a few…

Rebecca Guyver and her trashpo

    In a recent blog Rebecca leaned toward denigrating what she'd sent me lately. Gorgeous trashpo that knocked my sox off. I mean, look at it. The…

Alicia...Starr...

Alicia's mail art at first glance can look appealingly whimsical and sometimes immediate, and yet the longer you look, the more you see, including the thoughts behind it and the questions it inspires. I love this piece very much (and your handwrought envelope with vintage stamps, Alicia). Thank you as ever.…

Dr. Dave: "You CAN Be Less"! Check it out!

Did you know David Stafford is a doctor? Nope, didn't think so. But here we have two proofs: 

Really, it's always been obvious that Dave has a lot to offer, but who knew he has managed L.O.S.E.R. retreats for the past three years? And possibly does it all…

Erni Bar sends Rustpo

Two of the latest: 

The wire thingy is a very fanciful three-dimensional piece of rustpo; it almost stands on its own. I admired a photo of it Erni posted, and voila, here it is. The rusted crushed can, what can I say, it's in the TOP 10! Thank you, Erni. Here are two recent Dharmadada collages also. The other side of the Blackout one entailed more work, I suspect, but…

Borderline Grafix and Claudia Garcia

Collage+envelope all in one--many tiny interesting elements unto themselves making up a wonderfully cohesive and any-road-could-be-taken piece of art. Love it, thanks BG, and for stamps too ---…

DK: fab Motivational Trashpo 2/2 series--and more if you think it's needed

Great work from Diane as always. Her motivational trashpo series is so, so, motivating. Makes me want to step out on the sidewalk and do the very first thing that comes to mind. People in town have already discovered what that is, and thanks, DK! She also…

5Blanks [Cristina]

Strong yet free-spirited collage from Cristina. This showed up in my mailbox on the very same day that the postman picked up something I was mailing to her! So they crossed within 30 minutes of each other. This might not seem so interesting unless you consider that she and I manage to exchange mail art once a year at best. I loved it! Thanks Cristina. Below are…

Rachel Carter and Keith Chambers

Nicely rendered fluent-idea watercolor from Rachel (and vintage stamps used to send it!):

And two of Keith's recent mail arts. Skeptics always grab me, and the minimalist collage intrigues me:…

Poem by Richard C.

And look, it's on Perfection Paper. Or is it Perfect On Paper? No matter:

The half-imagined and half-real nuances of daily life and insistent internal second-guessing are all here. I really love this funny, surprised, touching poem. Thanks Richard, and I do hope your computer fund-raising is being handled by the right…
