An artistamp (a portmanteau of the words "artist" and "stamp") or artist's stamp refers to a postage stamp-like artform. It is similar to a Cinderella stamp in that it is not valid for postage, but it differs from a forgery or a bogus stamp in that (typically) the creator has no intent to fool any post office or collector of stamps. (However, depending on how the stamp is used, it may be difficult to distinguish artistamps from local post stamps.) The artistamp is intended to be a miniature artwork which can depict or commemorate any subject its creator chooses.

I will take this a bit broader. I plan a special thing to celebrate the 20 years of IUOMA and will see what that will be. Artistamps can be one part of that. A new group to collect these ideas has been started.

I was wondering if we shouldn't all make an artistamp celebrating and/or documenting the 20th anniversary of IUOMA...? I would enjoy it. What do people think?

Hace cuatro años 194 chicos murieron en un recital de rock, hoy seguimos esperando saber quienes son los responsables de esta locura, a las 194 almas va mi homenaje.
