"Actually the "Ding Dong" chap is Terry Thomas although Leslie Philips might have ripped him off in a film once. Sid James with a pipe from some film - probably "Carry ON Up The Walmarth"!"

  1. Funny how each day feels like a Sunday - except Sunday that feels more like a Monday?  Have been working on some new papier mache things. Can you guess what they might become?  …

Self Isolation - Day 44

Posted on April 27, 2020 at 9:49am 12 Comments

As you can see - reached Day 44 of Self Isolating and still very much enjoying the chance to do different things like this papier mache and junk dog. It's the 6th creation from household recycled packets and containers - other objects being diverse as a robot, a ray gun, a boat, Noah's Ark and an elephant head.  At present working on another elephant head as…

Self Isolation

Posted on March 18, 2020 at 3:05pm 19 Comments

During this awful Coronavirus  pandemic I will be self isolating as I am over 70.  Might pop out for a walk ocassionally if I go stir crazy and need to stretch my legs!   I'll have to run up and down the stairs a few times daily to keep up with my exercises.  The Daily Doodle on FB will help me keep "my eye in".  I expect to be doing lots more collaging and…

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.
