Still being on the new side, I am curious about how more experienced mail artists approach their work mentally when sitting down to do it. Do you form a piece specifically for a certain recipient, after you've come to know a few things about that person? Or do you tend more to go all-out free when you get to work, and send works to different artists without considering or worrying about that person's own style? I am hoping for replies from anyone who approaches their mail art one of these two ways, or both, or in some way different from the choices above. Thanks to all for your thoughts.
Angie (ok, & Snooky), do you know I never even looked at another mail-art site. Something brought me here -- forget what -- and it just took. The some-rules-ok-but-not-rules-ok-too philosophy is a major draw. People are plenty smart enough here to decide when to follow some and when not to because it's not necessary & artistic freedom, rah rah. Thanks for your post, it's a good one.
snooky has a lot of insights.
and even angie chimes in now and then! ;-D
Poor Angie, with Snooky's butt apparently outshining her on IUOMA.
