Jan Hodgman's PC has hit my mailbox!

"There's unparalleled beauty here." Indeed. This is a beautiful card, the blue is so peaceful and the circles, I love them. Wonderful quotes. I need to look at this every day. Thanks so much, Jan!

Richard Canard strikes again!

The latest from the Carbondale Duck. This one is way profound, kind of like a bacon double cheese half-pounder with extra jalapeno and strawberry jam. Richard, I don't believe for one second that your muse hangs out at the semi-golden arches. But I am puzzled about the three dots in the middle of your card. Is this Dada, Fluxus, or do my glasses need cleaning even more than…

Stan Askew's Oh So Soft Bunny!

What's not to LOVE about this little guy with his John Muir postage stamp?! I love the aged look of the photograph. I want to cuddle that bunny! And is that and 8 or the infinity symbol up top left. I'm reading it as infinity. Which makes the whole card very interesting and well, deep, if I may say. Thanks…

Fleur's Oakland

If there isn't a position with the City of Oakland for an official Mail Artist, there should be. Fleur makes wonderful pieces with photos of her city. I love what she's done with this one, with all the colorful "bling" at the edges.

David Stanley Aponte and Sheri Rice, your Mail Art is Here!

These two, Sheri Rice on the left, David Stanley Aponte on the right, so different, so great. Sheri's piece is very highly textured. All that stuff that looks like lace feels lacey to the touch, and the little piece that says "Dream" is a piece of actual cloth. Lovely. David's piece is paint, I think, on some really nice vintage figure drawings of what might be a train car or…

My first Mail Art from Gü is a düzy!

I'm pretty sure Richard Burton has never before been pictured holding a mole. "Alas poor Moley!" -- Look at the little toes! Amazing scissor-work! And in the little clear envelope that came with Hamlet, this great stash of Shakespeare ephemera -- note also the…

"Hang in There" from Dean

From Dean, this amazing collage -- this chicken makes a bigger mess than I do! and then, the reverse!

The bow-tie shaped thing is an actual hanger pasted onto the card. He must use really super-strong glue because it arrived naked and very firmly attached.…
