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.

Mr. Melk adverts from Norway. Just saying.   Lovely Diorama Dairies - I wonder if they sell Mr. Melk juice?

I'm in love with the new Cascadia post office.

The Diorama Diaries first issue dedicated to the inauguration of the new Post Office in Cascadia landed on my desk. Although no laughing matter I  think it deserves exposure here so I put together a taster.

Let's give Jack a collective virtual round of aplause!

Richard, Walmarth welcomes you into its clutch, and hopes that you take advantage of the many upcoming dumpster specials this summer. Also, remember if you visit Cascadia, that Walmarth Cascadia also has Trashpomobiles for your transportation needs.

This had me laughing for a while!

Hide's sense of humour made her convert to a funny face the stamps on the card she sent me with only one crafty well placed line. And the US post office added wavy hair to it.
