A wonderful envelope from Ficus strangulensis with an array of artistamps and postage stamps --  some amusing, some poignant -- and a vivid, colorful image, that if you turn vertically, looks like a leg with possible ouch, ouch, ouch, nerve pain.

Below is another example of the effects Adam Roussopoulos has been achieving with repetitive stamping on envelopes (see also Bradford's photos). This piece has a retro-70s geometric design with a shifting op art quality (squint).  In addition, on the right hand side, you'll notice a mailart clue:

"WHO KNEW MICHAEL VOODOO?" (see below for a reductive answer)

Michael VooDoo was a prolific mid-1980s to 90s(?) mail artist/collagist situated in Lake Park, FL.
