Last Outgoing - DEC 16th 2016

Greetings Mail Artists/ Vispoets/ Avantpoets/ Fans. This is my 1st entry of the year which includes works from December up to the present. I uploaded about 89 pictures so here we go. 

add & pass - seems Trump (sticker sent by Mars Tokyo) has a way of getting into every nook & cranny. I've been having the most American nightmares of my life, which aren't so much scary as kitchy at best. I had a Trump dream in which we went to the kitchen of a closed restaurant to eat. There was a big bowl of Indian style stew with tofu & Trump loved it. The help put it in the refrigerator before I could have some. Last night's waking dream included large, rectangular collector plates with Trump on them in vintage style colors & design. I'm sending this out; received I believe from C. Mehrl Bennett with Opal Majesty & Brignull (?) UK.

add & pass - via MomKat

This is one side of a return from Amy Irwin, a collaboration. 

This "box collage" Amy intended to mount she felt was better left unmounted as to fold it back into a box, which it does very neatly. A curious object & I like the back/ inside too. 

Envelope from Amy Irwin

postcard from Angie Cope - Angie shares Dogs!

Collab with Bela Grimm. I believe I returned this. It was made with a print of our original collab.

There are certain mailings that are consistent in form/ style that have become "comfort mailings". Ryosuke Cohen's Brain Cell poster is one of them. I have a gallery of 9 of them now right inside my apartment. This BC includes my eMTeVisPub 5089 stamp, which was created by Moan Lisa, "post mail art movement". 

C. Granlund - the bottom work is a collab with none other than Diane Keys

I love stickers (hint hint). This is an amazing work by CMB - "Found Fluxus Score" stickers, Moribund Facekvetch, me & CMB 2016. The starter sheet was an exercise I literally received in the office of my therapist after I had ruptured my Achilles. It works! Louis Zukofsky or straight ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOP...

Another postcard from Angie Cope. 2017 is indeed Year of the Rooster

Laminated & dyed by Diane Keys, my Grocery List (I finally bought Turmeric) 

Collabs with Diane Keys - I've worked with these & they are on my Pub table now, ready to seal & mail. The grocery list work is laminated. Diane dyed my works in purple tones, providing the complex color levels. 

LIVE ED - includes a work returned covered with 3 "War Suck'zz" stamps.

A very short run of TLBs for a poetry event hosted by Paul Baker, Madison WI, for New Year's day. I had a great time listening to a variety of poets & reading a bit myself.

This is another mail art "comfort mailing". The New Year's poem is awaited by many in the networks. The year doesn't begin without it.
