CIRCLES

Call them circles, call them dots, use a hole punch, use a template, draw them, scribble them, paint them, collage them. This is all about circles and how we make use of them.See More

Carina and Nadia and Stan and Jay and Richard and Jon and The Keys Family Media Group featuring Lord Phlegm

There's an old Buddhist saying: When a person gives you a dog don't thank them until they give you a second dog. Probably a poor translation but I think the meaning is quite clear: I now have the two dogs. It's time to thank. Above: Dog one. We like to keep him on a lead otherwise he gets carried away. …See More

"I have it pared down and will send it out tomorrow if the gods are favorable. If it's more than $25 I'll pick up the difference. Is that a Canadian "yah"? he wondered aloud."

"Lol ok. Yah, $48 is a bit much.. I can you 25$ is that helps determine how much to ship."

Carina and Katerina in the Fall

Is it a halloween card, a birthday card or just an old photo of cafe society circa 2017? I'm not sure but for our purposes here we're callin' it a Halloween card from Carina of Finland. Thank you, Carina. Below we have placed the card in a traditional "scary" tableau relevant to our national holiday of…

DKULT ARRIVAL

Posted on September 13, 2017 at 9:09pm 2 Comments

The Family DKult sent a huge package of things (most of which I've returned) (as required by law). As you can see from the Inset Carina G's laughing horse was included in the mix, not once but dos, and, as I discovered somewhat tardily, also in the package was an Anthead Super Collabo-zine add-and-pass which…

Stamps from Borderline Grafix, Miguel Jimenez, Keith Chambers and Henry Denander

The allure of artistamps is irresistible. So many mini-canvasses, so many great graphic forms to riff on, plus perfs! Here are four different artist approaches beginning with Borderline Grafix's homage to the classic "good girl" graphics from the Golden Age of comics.…

And here is the "rough beast in pram" himself! Wow!

At 7:05pm on March 28, 2017, Toni Hanner -- tonipoet said…

Hahahahahaha! Love the serendipitous "mistakes" --praxx becomes pram, and rough beast suddenly makes perfect, if scary, sense. Thanks for 'splaining!

At 3:22am on March 28, 2017, Toni Hanner -- tonipoet said…

David, thanks for the wonderful Mail Art postcard -- both sides are terrif! I am trying to figure out the reference -- I know the Yeats poem, but "in Praxx" stumps me....what am I missing?
