Call them circles, call them dots, use a hole punch, use a template, draw them, scribble them, paint them, collage them. This is all about circles and how we make use of them.See More

Just for SQUARES!

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

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.

Thank you Mim for the lovely ATC circle cards! I appreciate them very much! The mail I sent you should arrive soon!

Thanks for the friend addition! Yay for knowing Eastern Washington! That is exciting! I look forward to trading circle art!

Yes, Mimi, round and round we go. Will I need sunglasses too?

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!

Thanks, Mim! I'm looking forward to receiving the add & pass.  As with any new venture, it will take me a while to learn my way around IUOMA.

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.

I'm excited to find out there's so many Richmond based mail artists! I would love to exchange with anyone in the area :+)

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.

All the best!
