To Myself! Oct 2020

Profile Information

Mail-Artist since:
Hmmm, been doin' weird things with mail since the early 70s, but only with friends/family until 1994.
My Website (without http://):
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
The usual reasons: it's truly democratic (if you ignore the poor folks who don't have mail service) and it is NECESSARY for my soul to create/share art in such a fashion. I can't quite put a finger on why I went from collecting stamps to making my own stamps when in my early teens thinking I was the only weirdo on the planet to do such a thing.

21.10.20 Dare Sir Bradford,...looking forward to the second coming of the Yves Klein postcard ("Leap into the Void")  -a monumental  event in contemporary art.......& the Doonesbury Cartoon Postage Stamps (via Michael Thompson) .....I had not ever heard of that one but  what an exciting,strange & exceptionable collectible that must be even among traditional  & conservative stamp collectors!!!!!   SinCelery, Richard Canard

I mailed my first piece in 1990, but perhaps some of the old envelopes that I've employed have earlier dates on them, but I can't contend that my work pre-dates 1990. My first was a stamp of Bug Bunny taken from a magazine with his ears extending beyond the borders of the cartoon perforations. My motivation came from an article about a Doonesbury cartoon that was drawn as postage stamps and folks cut those out, glued them to envelopes and sent them successfully through the mail.

Hi Bradford, thanks so much! For some reason I'm just seeing your message, I think I just haven't gotten the hang of the IUOMA site yet. You have such a great collection of work on your page. Would you like to do an exchange?

Heavens ... will this set a new trend of sending images of washing machines? Will a new IUOMA group have to be started?

Thanks for the feedback.  I was trying for a Bruno C. flashy image.  it took some time and i'm still not sure but ya can't go wrong with pinials as finials (had to look that one up - i was sure it was a bird term..jeje) or with avians. Will send snail mail one of these days.... if the post office survives in the USA...ciao
