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.

This one is definitely a smile: a "Cat on Tablecloth" card from Mail Art Martha. It was accompanied by the "Marpril" issue, "Foldi22", and an Easter greeting note.

Don't worry, Martha, I received your mail in time for Easter. I'm just slow!

Haha, I LOVE the dishwasher!

I don't see the "Anti-Gravity Bidet" in your supplement?   Hopefully it will return in the future months?

And here is The Clutch Supplement. Double click to enlarge, I think...

Thank you for the jokes Katerina and Michael. I learned something, Poisson d'Avril, I had never heard this expression.
