Call for Art: The Denison Arts Council and the MK Gallery calls for mail art that incorporates imagery and themes (sugar skulls, skeletons imitating the living, ofrendas, papel picados) associated with Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead). All work should be created on heavy weight postcard, blank paper, or index cards measuring 3”X5” (7.6 cm X 12.7cm) or 4”X 6” (10.16 cm X 15.24 cm).

"I’ll play. I have mail art too I’m sending you today in the mail for the piece you sent me a long time ago. I have a ton of boring postcards too I need to do something with this is a super good idea would you mind if I posted an event…"
I'm a former actress and singer, now teacher and lover of life! I am a mixed media collage artist, specializing trash and vintage. I also love poetry, so many of my pieces include poems. I rescue old old poetry volumes from library sales, thrift stores, etc, and use the pages. I also do altered books, covering the pages of old weary books with life!
Irony and depravity are key, as I find humor in almost every aspect of life. I'm 56 with the mind of a 16 year old and the heart of a lion...originally from New Orleans, but now live near Chicago. I've been creating and sending MAIL ART all over the world since 2000. I'm an artist, teacher and writer. I special in trashpo and vintage collage. I also produce comic ZINES.
I don't like perfection... I like raw soulful art that does not shock for shock value.
I love pen pal letter, tacky postcards, and whatever you want to send me.
VINTAGE is my thing, and I love thrift stores, antique malls and Ebay (aka "the devil"). LOL!
SEND ME SOMETHING SOON AND YOU WILL BE REWARDED!

Thank you for the zine.That poem The Forecast by Dan Jaffee seemed almost uncannily prescient.aHave I sent you a Poetic license yet ?The magic fish was a childhood favorite and have also used them as random gifts. I registered as passionate this morning.Had to do twice , but got the same result despite the early hour and gray skies. Must be about my current passion for Mail art.Also enjoyed the collage postcard,the background is great.
Oooh la la! A fabulous mail art package from Bonniediva! With homework! :) I'm excited to play along and create collage fun with you, my friend. Thank you so much for the goodies. Something is on it's way to you! xo, E
