Today is the International Banana Appreciation Day and the BANANAS Group here at IUOMA has prepared a special banana mail art exchange for the occasion. This piece by Finn Badger arrived yesterday, talk about perfect timing!…Continue
Simple and fun mail art by Walter Pennacchi from Italy, sent back in 2012.
I love seeing people's handwriting. The little profile portrait is a nice touch, it seems to be a recurrent theme among mail…Continue

I've receive this piece a while ago from my hometown fellow Patrício aka The Celestial Scribe. I find Patrício's specialty is to provide us with food for dreams. His work is full of little details, like the small envelope with a thank you note and a gift from the Patlander Celestial Garden. The whole…Continue
Super nice twist to one of my pieces by Virginia/USA based mail artist Mim sent back in July 2012.
I like the stamping on the back very much as…Continue
More Greek Mail Art from Katerina Nikoltsou!
Katerina certainly shares my love of fruit and all things Dada. This one came with a little reminder of the foam art I've sent her a while ago.…Continue
I was so happy to receive this in the mail box today!
Mail art from good friend Dean Marks with yummy pizza on it! It reminds me of old times indeed, working on mail art all afternoon and having a pizza dinner afterwards. Too bad we all live too far apart now.
There's also a small bar code composition, a few brush strokes and the message is very…Continue
Card and gift sent last year from Katerina Nikoltsou. I hope this is not too late to post it! The landscape drawing and watercolour painting is simple and pretty. Love the sparkles and will certainly use then on future projects. Katerina once blogged about one of the sparkly projects I did in the past: …Continue
Paulo Bruscky is a pioneer mail artist in Brazil. He's been working since, I believe, the 60's. He's active to this day and I was thrilled to receive this card from him. I was sent in March 2011.…Continue

Postcard sent by Dean Marks aka Artist in Seine in July 2012. I'm afraid some bits and pieces fell off of it, but it still looks great despite being incomplete. I love that the electronic circuit could survive the trip intact.…Continue
Sent from the USA in 2012. Stamp sheet signed Jack Lattemann and numbered 20/20.
I can't even handle how cool this is. Getting something from Cascadia Artpost in the mail always makes my day.
Here is the envelope.…Continue

Mail Art received in 2012 from Trick Sensei, USA.
I think Trick Sensei uses stencils, spray paint and some kind of texture paint. The paint is opaque but it has a bit of a sheen to it, the fire is sheer and there are bits of gold and silver here and there. It is not only cool looking but also nice to touch.
The back has stampings and…Continue

It has cute robots on the back with the message "Let the sun shine in your heart today!" A nice reminder we all could use some positivity these days.…Continue
This peachy summery goodness was sent back in 2015. It came like a breath of fresh air on the mail. Katerina must have guessed that fruit is my favourite food. She's sent me some watermelon once: …Continue
This was sent to me back in August 2012. It is not the Eiffel Tower and, technically, it is not the Tokyo Tower either. Towers are difficult to be sent by the mail. I very much prefer to receive a picture of it.
Oh my, it's been a while since my last blog. I got this piece by Dean Marks earlier this year. On one side there is a french museum advert that says "Emmenez vos infants voir des gens tout nus" , which means "Take your children to see naked people". The other side shows an UK government's GREAT Britain campaign stating "Culture is great". I love that Dean put these too adds together, so clever. Culture is great indeed.…Continue
Here is another Paris plage themed card by Dean Marks. This makes me miss Paris so very much.
The transparent CD disk gave an idea for a new Mail-Art project... some new stuff might me coming up soon!…Continue
Cascadia Artpost sent me this Map of Bananada. It is so fun! I could literally spend hours just reading through the map and all those funny landmark names.
The stamps are lovely. This card actually holds an invitation to an exhibition in honour of Anna Banana. Sounds wonderful, I wish I could visit it.…Continue
