She has always been supportive of my art and has shown a special interest in mail art in particular. She doesn't participate, but has always been thrilled when i've sent her stuff in the past.

fine art that is fake fine art

Fine Art is on a tear, the ripping kind. please enjoy these cards.


also: Dear Iuoma members, i know this is not necessary, but i just wanted to say something. My blog posts are minimal in words. I can't help it. i sit at the keyboard and nothing comes out. I'm good for quips and non-sequiturs that's about it.

Collaboration with C.Z. Lovecraft
