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.

Michael! honestly! Do not mention the o word here! Falling in my case is genetic. As a child my knees were always painted in lovely tones of black blue and purple with an occational touch of yellow, like a weird sunset. I am sure that contributed to my love of colour.

Oh Fleur Silly cards? I like them. Mine are always silly. Sometimes I think I will be chucked out of the universe due to my lack of seriousness. That must be why I formed this group, sillyness is not only welcomed but a requirement.

I've finished the very silly set of mail art cards. There are six cards in all, and I've chosen these two to post here.

Take care, everyone! In the meantime, let the fun continue.

Right now, I'm working on a very silly set of mail art cards. As soon as I've finished them, I'll post a couple.

Glad to wrist is better Martha.  Yes, so easy to fall over especially as you get older.  I slipped on the ice a few winters back and kicked a nearby concrete bollard. My big toe went black and was very painful. Ouch!  So hopefully no ice this Winter!  Only in my rum and coke!

Michael and Ilya!

Thanks Michael. Better now I mean the wrist. My ego is ailing, it took the worse tumble. i feel so stupid. I had reached the landing and put my foot on the next step, which, of course, was not there. And fell sideways. Rather funny isn't it?

Of course Ilya, anything you think is somewhat funny but do not injury yourself!
