Smiles & Smirks

Art with a measure of humour is required by Walmarth Corporation for its chain of supermarkets, located in the Queendom of Retailia and in Cascadia Artpost. Through this collaboration Cascadia Artpost and Mail Art Martha are continuing to give impulse to Trashpo, the artistic vision of Diane Keys.

‘Walmarth Corporation is an entertaining and witty parody of corporate, consumer culture. Cascadia Artpost’s painstaking realization of Mail Art Martha’s ideas through detailed, special effects style models makes Walmarth Corporation one of the crowning achievements of Trashpo in the half-decade that it has been producing a large quantity of art.’

In addition to Trashpo the Corporation has now expanded to include political satire, parody, comics, caricature and witty playfulness.
Your contribution is needed to fill the shelves.

The latest edition of the Foldi series (#14) has arrived, along with an "Asemic Postage Trashpo" card, and an illustrated poem. There was also a letter (that I didn't scan). More treats, more fun ... thank you, Martha!

Hmmm? there seems fog envelops the STG, it may not be allowed to take off after all, Nigel.

I picked up my mail on Friday, October 29th, and there was a Lucky 13 issue of the Foldilope awaiting me. There were Halloween greetings and a little book of autumn haiku inside.

I love the kitty in the middle. Thanks, Martha!

Thank you! I had a bunny and the mask did  not save it from being chomped to bits!

Because of almost everything being shut down due to the pandemic, Vermina is doing some necessary grooming on Infecto at home, while Ali Kaht waits.
