J.A.D. Media Bits and Jan Hodgman

J.A.D.'s 'Istanbul'--mysterious, lovely, seems to belong with Jan's soft beautiful circles card. The small dots are raised, and I love the almost readable text background. Great colors in both pieces. Thanks!

Debra Mulnick's Beautiful PC

This is really nice work -- old cardboard, covered with lovely mauvish images -- look at the wing-like structure top right -- and the same bottom left -- just beautiful. The reverse is equally cool! Thanks Debra!…

Aine Holder--another wonderful Mail Art Package

OMGosh Aine Holder's Mail Art just makes me happy, like her little "incher" above says! Isn't that a beautiful Salmon ATC -- very subtle colors, lovely textures. The purple ATC is the finish of a Buddy Jam started by Gaby Muller, not on the IUOMA site but an avid jammer. Thanks Aine -- you totally…

Believe it or not, this is the back of the envelope Live Ed sent me! You can run your hand over it and feel every one of these terrific heavy black lines. I hope Dylan has seen this -- he would LOVE it!

ATC's from Amy Irwin

How fabulous are these!!!!???? They are highly textured (paint, cloth, thread, postage stamps, text) highly layered, intricately thought out and crafted but still with an explosion of freedom. Amy, you were one of my very first inspirations in the Mail Art World and I'm so grateful for your…

New friend Irina from St. Petersburg, Russia!

Here's a really nice sort-of czarist looking jewel collage from Irina. I like the irregularity and assymetry of it very much. And of course I can't begin to read the text but I like looking at it! Thanks, Irina.

David Stanley Aponte's PC

This is the "front" side of David's PC -- for some reason the other side wouldn't upload to this site. I really love the ghostly flag/face images on the left side, superimposed over the "dark satanic mills" industrial picture on the right. Really nice work.

MAM says she'll be "back on the saddle after any holidays next week." I'm so glad! Meanwhile, she sends this marvelous bit of the Bayeaux Tapestry showing "King Harold pushing his Shopping Trolley Gallery, possibly carrying the royal sandwiches" -- vintage Mail Art Martha indeed. The blue piece is a "sun print" and then there are lovely artistamps from Cascadia Artpost! Thanks,…

Cuan Miles's Mail Art from S.Africa

I've said it before, I'm sure--Cuan Miles is a freakin' genius. Spend some time looking at these, the faces, especially. I know I'm pretty effusive in praise sometimes, but my lord, these just blow me away. The top right one is called "Across a Crowded Room."…

J.A.D. Media Bits sends bits

These are all pretty cool, but the middle piece is really intriguing! Postage stamps, digitally altered somehow--to get that dark warping. Love the graph paper background, too. Thanks…
