"Yes, a very resourceful and creative idea.  To think of how many Rolodexes™ I've passed up at thrift stores!  Once filled with ATCs/Artistamps, it becomes a Dial-A-Mood."

Profile Information

Mail-Artist since:
october 2019
My Website (without http://):
http://feelmailart.blogspot.com/
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I started a mail-art project, called the C-Post Project, because In this world of far-reaching standardization I think it is important that we honor the ability of humankind to create unique artwork. This project is about showing this quality.
I am a Dutch artist and started an envelope series to send to artists all over the world that have inspired me.
Participants will receive an envelope with a mono/multi print and they can return one back (in any which way they like). In addition, I would love to find a favorite poem/quote/saying/motto to go with it.

The creation of the C-Post Project of course will take time. After at least one year I will organize an exhibition of the received materials as a colorful reminder that people all over the world are and will be connected.
And that there is beauty everywhere!

Carien, that is a good idea. I will have to see how I can go about doing that. Can they use their school email addresses?
