I was shocked and saddened when hearing Susan had died.  She was a good artist and an even better person.  I'm glad I got to have her at many of the Meetups I was hosting back in the day.  She made everything she touched more lovely.

I am putting together a FaceBook page in her memory and would greatly appreciate any scans you can send me of art she sent to you.  I want to share as much of her art with the world as I can!  

Send it to me in an email or leave it here in a comment with permission to post it on FB.

If you send an email, please put 'for Susan's memorial page' in the subject line.

Thanks, in advance, for your help with this.

This is very sad news. Susan was one of the first people to send me art when I joined IUOMA. Her unique line work was always interesting. They reminded me of automatic drawings. RIP Susan, you will be missed.

Susan will be dearly missed,

and yes, Richard, her "bold" black and white creations, too.

I was lucky enough to receive a few postcards from Susan McAllister. ...the images usually consisted of some bold simplified cartoonish head drawing with markers of red, black with critical empty white spaces. ... I did not know hardly anything about her but I admired  & liked her very much. I was oftentimes reminded of Pablo Picasso's statement:"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once (s)he grows up."

Dear IUOMA members, i wanted to let you know of Lilac Susan McAllister's passing this morning in Berkeley Ca. She loved being a part of IUOMA and she lived for mail art. Thank you for this platform. Blessings to all

Hi Susan - thank you for the postcard - made me smile. I'm hoping that means bird 323 arrived safely. I'm blogging here: bird arrivals blog and the next 365 has just started the chicken series

Thanks for being part for the bird migration project.
