Hi all ! I am very new to IUOMA, joining a few weeks ago. It was such a pleasant surprise to receive mail the very first week after I joined. I want to thank Human Artist Vending Machine, Mim Golub Scalin, and Richard Canard for being so kind to a new member. I loved what they sent me (see photos I posted yesterday)
I thought I would post a photo of some cards I made over the weekend which will be my first outgoing mail art. I like to incorporate old ephemera in my art, along with mixed media and photography. This first batch is a combination of 1920's Newspapers, 1960's Comic Books, a 1950's How-To Book, and some 1990's Patriot Militia Newsletters. Quite a mixture, huh?
This has been fun! I look forward to exchanging lots of mail art down the road. I would love to trade with anyone out there, and I would be happy to do extended features of your art work on my web site PHOTO/arts Magazine. I have edited this site since 2007 and it attracts an international readership. I am also on the board of directors of The Art Blog, an internationally recognized and award winning art website which is celebrating 10 years in existence this year.
Send me your work! I promise to always send something in return and will follow up with my favorite artists to do feature posts on PHOTO/arts Magazine or The Art Blog.
All the best from a newbie!
