There was a prompt from CreativeSprint to make something just using squares. I'd forgotten how I'd learned to love squares while teaching 2D design with Wucius Wong and Josef Albers Interaction of Color (years ago) I thought, Wow, there must be other Square lovers out there. Thanks to Katerina for the name idea. See More
It's about communicating, connecting, sharing, and making. It's about not having to deal with galleries or juries or framing or sales. It's about having one's bliss and sharing it. To see my first MailArt365 project, check out my Fllickr set. http://flic.kr/s/aHsjsW3hKW

If you are in the Philadelphia, PA area on Monday, 4 June, 2012 - stop by between 10 and 4 to celebrate Skull Appreciation Day. I'll be there until about 3 P.M. It'd be fun to have a mini-meet-up of sorts. The Mail Art received will be on display.
Today I got the add & pass you sent, Mim. Oh dear, I'm afraid it's not entirely self-explanatory to me. Can anyone just start an add & pass and send it to whomever they choose? Do you add on to the original piece or add a new one and send both/all? Is the idea to keep to the same theme? Is there an end point? Someone commented that there are No Rules with mail art. But I'm a person who asks a lot of questions and needs a bit more guidance. Thanks!
Hello Mim. Im pleased the art mail arrived to you. I did post that i didnt want anymore add n passes, at that time i had a lot accumilate with me and it took me some time to get them outgoing to interested parties. im not actively seeking to be an add n passer, but if one sneaks in somehow i will add to it and send onwards.
i much prefer the atc jams and deco swap bookies. i like to swap atcs postcards etc. and i have my own altered books and visual art journals at home to dip into.
do let me know if atc jams arent really your thing,i can easily and happily send occasional art mail that you dont need to forward on.
Mim, thanks for your comment! Just saw it. Yes, here in Hong Kong we're experiencing the third wave of the pandemic. The number of infections has been decreasing though,which is a good news. I am new to mail art. Really excited to be part of the community.
