Gail Anderson's Mail Art

Gail's collages are always zippy and cheerful. I love them! This guy looks like he's stuck on a beautiful mandala, trying to toss something to someone in the audience -- a bouquet of flowers, a roast chicken?

Thanks Gail!

Joey & Gerda--Mail Art Blogorama

Joey Patrick's endlessly fascinating symbols up top--circles and squares, Venn Diagrams and bar codes! From the most basic technology (making a Japanese paper fan) to the most up to date and complex! Whatever that sort of lizard skin colored piece is is really nice there, too. Thanks Joey!

Gerda Osteneck made the bottom piece out of canvas--the…

Katerina's Autumn Mail Art

I LOVE these autumn images! Unfortunately, my scanner just completely washed out the orange color of the braid. It's extremely vivid in real life! Don't know what the issue is--technology baffles me sometimes. Nice Work, Kat!

Angie Cope's Corgi Print

She says this is a lino print from something her daughter drew! No shortage of talent in that family! Very cool colors and textures. Love it!

Melissa Wand Fabulousness

This is one of those pieces that warrants going back again and again to see into its depths. The background leads directly to the poem, the poem to the drawn stones, the stones to the inquisitive woman. Then the final words "under it." and the big black arrow pointing down. AMAZING!!! Thanks…

Karalee Vest Mail Art Pack

Very cool package of ephemera, plus a lovely piece of hand made, hand painted paper, and last but not least, an Add & Pass boekie started by Gin! Thanks…

Amy Irwen's ATC's and other lovelies

Amy is la maitresse of the fiber art ATC! The one on the right is just stunning. The photo does not begin to do it justice. Love the stickers, too. She also sent me some stickers of He Who Shall Not Be Named, but I didn't want to spoil anyone's day with his picture! Thanks,…

Fleur's "Reflections in a Pond"

Beautiful! I hope Oakland is not under water like so many other places, though! Thanks, Fleur!

Debra Mulnick sends greetings from Crete!

Wow! what a wonderfully colorful happy card! Debra must be having a splendid time in sunny Crete. Love the birdies and the grinning, wild-eyes T-shirt person! That fly better watch out, though. The birds look hungry! Thanks Debra!

ORANGE from Keith Chambers

Tis the season for ORANGE! Love the mystified look on the goldfish's face as he sees the carrot dangling there. The artistamps are wonderful! and here's the other side of the envelope with a banana skull!…

Mars Tokyo Keeps on Resisting!

Fabulous. Love the painted out features, making the model seem utterly without any will or personality of her own. The description of the dress, "girl graduate," and "sweet Sally dress," is cringe-worthy these days. Thanks Mars!

Mike Parsons -- My First Mail Art from Him!

Really nice "momento mori" card from Mike, a photo-collage using some of his gorgeous journal pages. Thanks, Mike!

Mars Tokyo's Mail Art

Mars new work seems all about RESISTANCE! Bound, blinded, strangled -- Da Da indeed. I love the addition of the freedom-related postage stamps to the ATC's. Absolutely great work!

Jimmy Connors and Michael Orr Mail Art

At the top is one of Jimmy's famous distressed postcards--this one has holes cut in it and some deliberate-looking tears on the surface. Really interesting, what he's doing. 

The pink/red card is a wonderful piece from Michael Orr. So complex, I like it very much. The list across the top is a kind of poem including entries such as "owls" and…

Robyn Banks' ATC's

Top left is a completed Buddy Jam I sent to Robyn. I love what she did with my simple abstract design. Top right is an ATC in her new "cubist" style. So restful to the eye. It almost reminds me of Eastern Orthodox iconography, not sure why...beautiful postcard, too! Thanks…

Mail Art Martha!

WOW! I didn't know Martha was fluent in Spanish! Or Cat, or Rat! As best I can figure, the cat is bragging about not only being descended from Egyptian gods but also one of his ancestors was a favorite of Louis XIV of France. The rat responds, in essense, "no big deal, cat, my family has always been distinguished in medical experimentation!" Wonderful…

Amy Irwen's ATC

Wow, I don't know how Amy does it! Sewing on what looks like foil! I would totally mess that up. I love this ATC and the envelope, too!
