Doodles

More doodles for the FB "Daily Doodle" group.  I keep forgetting to do this but managed these recently.  Never been a great one for keeping a sketchbook going - they usually fizzle out after the first few pages.  Diaries were the same.  I did holiday diaries which are nice to look back on but otherwise I have to rely on old letters that I never sent or ones returned to me…See More

Runny Soopspoon

I had this weird dream about making a comic called "Runny Soopspoon"  recently and decided to actually use it as a jumping off point for a new collage 'zine.  I started a couple of folded A4  pages and sent them off to a couple of my regular  correspondents - Roger Radio and Ron Monocassette.  Ron sent his contribution back ( see below some sample pages )  and hopefully Roger will do likewise.  I will then add some more and recycle in some way.  Not really decided yet.…See More

Keeping Up The Appearances

On the small rain swept soggy Island the locals all huddled together under the upturned boat and off they squelched to the nearest seaside tavern.  Squwlch squelch!  The distant waves crashed upon the shingle beach and the sea slugs and sea squirts dived for cover for fear of being trodden on as nobody knew which was to go or indeed could see anything except the inky blackness of the neck in front.  Social distancing was non-existent but luckily the Islanders were all immune from the Rettible…See More

"Glad to wrist is better Martha.  Yes, so easy to fall over especially as you get older.  I slipped on the ice a few winters back and kicked a nearby concrete bollard. My big toe went black and was very painful. Ouch!  So hopefully no…"

More Doddles from the Doodle Factory

I haven't felt much like using my sketchbook lately but now and again I get the urge to add something  some nonsense that doesn't really mean anything but seems appropriate for some reason.  Not sure why this image of Lon Chaney as Frankenstein's monster seems pertinent but here it is .  Tommy's Mum woud approve I'm sure.…See More

I love that orange dog!

I am also enjoying self isolation, we are taking it very seriously and started a week before the official date.

But I still have that I-cannot-cope-feeling. To think that some of my non-mail artists friends are bored. What is that?  Do you know?

This is for you, from Retailia with love.

Great to hear from you Michael! FYI, my email address is jackklattemann@comcast.net

You should receive the Hannah commemoration envelope soon. Yesterday I sent Hazel mail that she should received in the next week.

All the best,

Jack

Michael, could you send me your postal address? I wish to include you in a September mailing to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Fluxus Bucks. ~Jack Lattemann, Cascadia Artpost, 3116 Moore St. SE, Olympia, WA 98501-3517 USA ~ jackklattemann@comcast.net

Hi Michael, If you want to do a swop with me/UK add and pass let me have your address.  i've just added something to an add & pass from Laura so not really sure who to send it on to... 

ps I'm not on facebook/instagram/twitter, I'm a proper snail mail bunny

Thank you Michael, I'm sorry for my delayed reply, I don't get on the computer too much.  Yes I'm a mail artist in the UK, based in London.  I was wondering if you might have a UK mail artists directory.  I'm mainly interested in mail art swops, or contributing to various themed calls - I prefer that over adding and passing.
