THANK YOU! Mass Blog (Suus In Mokum, ARTLIKEART, Carina Granlund, Dean Marks, Stephanie Blake, Guido Vermeulen, Erica Durante AND Mim Golub Scalin!)

Suus In Mokum had the unfortunate duty of reminding me that I had let summer take over my life, neglecting to blog or even say, "Thank you!" for some of the wonderful mail that has been gracing my humble box these days. Embarassed, but glad to have been put back on track, I am here now to shout out to all of you amazingly wonderful folks!

Beginning with Suus... she's been patiently waiting since June, to hear if I'd received this lovely piece...

Artlikeart, sent me one of the prints from her "letterpress reign!" Simple, elegant and punny!

Guido's envelope art, "Breathing Polluted Air Blues," was a treat that made my soul happy, oddly enough.

Erica Durante delighted me with this piece of trashpo/receiptpo. I loved the inclusion of the library receipt and bit of russian text. The security envelope print cloud was a bit serendipitous, as I have been working with the stuff a good bit these days...

I love the minimalism of "Color Study #16" from Mim Golub Scalin! A most excellent composition to be sure! :D

Dean Marks' affinity for barcodes is known far and wide. Imagine how delighted I was to find this 9"x7" piece in the mail. Upon closer inspection, I found that it did not fare so well on the trip from France... there are several spots where pieces have literally been ripped from the whole. I am interested in a glimpse of this piece prior to mailing... Maybe Dean made a scan?

The back side of Dean's piece was as interesting as the front!

No Andy Warhol fan should ever be without Campbell's Tomato Soup Can art! I have Stephanie Blake to thank for this laminated gem!

I call it like I see it and this piece is just plain FUN!

Carina Granlund's style always delights! I love the retro feel of this one:

 A BIG THANK YOU to everyone!

Now, it's back to the studio to make art! See you in the mail!

Don't know how I managed to miss this post of yours, Dean! Once found, i was able to identify the pieces that were missing! It made my day, I assure you! :D

Oh wait, Oh wait, here it is... but can anyone see the difference?   Oh happy me, now I can sleep at nights again.

No, it' snot-ra. "These boots we're made for walkin'..."

That's right! "High Hopes've Got the World on a String, That's Amore!"

DVS, conversations with you are always educational! You Rock!

Oooooh, Carina! I never guessed you'd picked up a sweet little booklet of them! Excellent! I love the idea of the question quotes book...

Carina, P x E = B is from psychologist Kurt Lewin, who pretty much invented social psychology. He was into Field Theory, Gestalt - views that required looking at the whole environment and context rather than a narrow focus on the individual.

Hi Lynn, everyone, thank you for a great blog and nice comments! I have stolen my question from a book I recently bought, "Design in question", a book full of written questions, no answers but makes one to reflect. DVS has a good point PxE=B!

I used one of my cards from my beautiful Paris booklet I bought in a antique-junk store in nearest town, very cheap. I did not know they were so popular!! Thanks Dean, should I sell them... no..
