John Bennett and Matthew Stolte - When Partial Words Collide - and adding Jim SantAmour!

John sends me - and others - the most wonderful things :-).  I have NO idea why, but they just YELL at me to add to them - I'm sure some of you feel that?  John is also a well known ZALOPIST.  ZALOPISTS inhabit ZALOP City in the World of Emphatics.

ZALOPISTS make maps to secret doors leading to ZALOP City.  Its very difficult to find you  see.  This is NOT a FAKE map - this is an AUTHENTIC JMB map.  It is NOT a shopping list.

There are various ways to say hello. Matthew knows quite a few. 

Matthews vispo  is dense, textured - almost as though the seeping ink matches the bleeding words - and visually very rich.  An ideal melding of image and language. It is  textured and rich in color, an ideal melding where language and image are combined.

Jim's vispo might be alligator poetry when he uses Florida photos. Yet it is not Alpo!

It arrived in REALLY good condition - I have to say - I was impressed :-)!

And the card arrives like that with all these mini strings of paper glued on it? That's lucky.

Are frogs popular in vispo? ;-o  I found another frog piece (KS Ernst). I prefer the Penn/Bennett one though

The Les Brumes work is a discovery, and it's so much in line with the mX aesthetic. It's very subtle, and a lot of vispo is far from subtle. I'm just venturing into the technology side of it - some of our "Legends of Vispo" are masters at digital work also (and don't forget Bellini) - but isn't this probably done using photoshop? The same thing could be achieved using "Old School" techniques. But, with these things, I suppose many of us wonder: "How did she do that?"

These are really wonderful, wow.

These are FAB! Still have not got to the experiment - but hopefully shortly!
