Thanks for the card. Looks like to me the poor guy fell off the magic carpet and now things are quickly deteriorating. At least he made it here safely! Thanks again. We'll see what the magic carpet comes up with next time...
No worries Val, I'm sure i can forgive you a little misunderstanding. That's a lot of stamps. They're just about to put the price up here in the UK, as I'm sure you've heard, not the best news ever. Not too much to be done about that, just make some art I suppose...
Catch you again in the future no doubt and good luck with your exhibition.
Jean Pierre Leaud was an amazing actor, I love him in all those Truffaut films, but there's a picture of him online that scares me to death. Anyway, thanks so much for the card, it's nice to see the movie poster in French.
Bon weekend? Me waiting for midnight to start Greek Easter celebrations which will go on all week as usual...lots of "souvala"...lamb,wine, goat,wine, kokoretsi,Easter bread, wine...all this goooood stuff!
Glad you got ALL the mail art:-) And are you off to the UK, again?
Well, no hurry to reply, just enjoy your trip to Darlington (?)
Thank you for your advice, very much appreciated, although I must add that I am concentrating completely on the art and I never compromise my creativity for the sake of commercialism. Sure on my website I offer some work for sale (as do you) but this is only done as a means to support my creativity. Anyone is very welcome to partake in my latest project and receive some free artwork. However some people out there are not mail artists and may be more interested in simply buying some work or helping to support my material costs.
As for the 'security' theme of my latest work, this is my artistic take on the security industry informed by my experience as a security guard based in an art studio. It's not meant to be taken completely seriously and my humour is rather tongue in cheek.
I would a shame if I were to get banned from IUOMA as I am truly interested in international creative exchanges and I see mail art as one way of giving something back to the world in which I'm fortunate enough to practice something that I love.
I hope you understand, and thank you for your time.
Well, I didn't find it per se....I made it up...The actual album is a very funny Mantovani record which seems to be inhabited by miniaturized people. And yes, there is a record inside which you should be able to access by taking an exacto knife and running it neatly down the edge. Alas, it's not Abbe Lane but I'll let you discover what it is on your own. Abbe Lane, btw, is still alive as far as I know. I'm glad you enjoyed it and I hope the exhibition was a big success.
Ha ha ha! I thought You mad a joke about the African Reserve but when googling it up.......hmm...or did You just make that internetsite while writing to me?! ;)
Now... off to the drawing table. (It turned out that the bikers were just a three year old boy waiting outside with his tricycle bike, probably smelled the newly baked cinnamon rolls from our appartment)
The bikers were gone this morning, I thought they were a threat from Arty slides int. but I was wrong, they just got the wrong house, those bikers are also opponents to modern technology and hence do not have a gps.
I have seen Your house in Sigean on photos, where do You keep all the goats, sheeps and camels?
Something as a trade is posted. (I know I did not have to but it is more fun that way)
I would give You the Kingdom (of Sweden) if I could but I wan't to give You a "surprise". And it is not even a ticket to the next Nobel Price banquet but a much more humble trade than that. Your Ferrari is orange, that I have seen on pictures and much more lovelier than it's Italian brother. I am glad for any slides so You choose, everything is a challenge though a paper slide... ;)
I will show You the Cancellator within a week....
The Best to You,
p.s. I'll be in the Carousel so please tell the biker-gorillas that stands outside my frontdoor to go away!!!!!
I have a proposition. I have a hard time finding slides. Do You have 4 slides that I can trade with You? What do You wan't in return? I have old old old Swedish stamps and a cool authentic cancellator (I know it is not the proper word for it but a better one that I propose everyone should call these so callet cachet's or whatever).
