Painting and Mailing the Oaks

The Oak Woodlands are one of my favorite spots in Golden Gate Park.  One of the few spots in the park that looks much like the land did before the park was developed.  There is no gift shop and no postcards, so I have made a series of my own.  I was tempted to protect these hand-painted cards by sending them in envelopes.  But part of the risk and magic of mail art is letting what may happen in postal…See More

Juggling Mail Art

Sometimes you receive a piece of mail art where the envelope is as in incredible as what’s inside. That is what happens whenever I get something from Kathy Barnett. The envelope is great, and I love the champagne drinking head juggler (you can move and adjust the little heads).…See More

Brain Cell Brains

https://tofuartsf.blogspot.com/2022/04/brain-cell-brain.htmlI am not sure if I was supposed to preserve all of Ryosuke Cohen’s brain cells in my overflowing mail art archives forever.  Using one of my hand carved rubber stamps, I did a series of brain cell brains.  All applied to unused Hungarian franked postcards that end up in a collage fodder box.   The brains are on their way back around the world.…See More

Mail Art to Remember the Dead

Covid has kept me home and I have not travelled to Mexico for two years now.  Ideally, I’d be there for the Día de los Muertos celebrations — it is one of my favorite holidays. Instead, I will make my ofrenda at home in San Francisco.  And this past week I have been carving rubber stamps and making some mail art for the holiday.   These postcards are on their way locally and around the world.…See More

10th Anniversary Artist Stamps in San Francisco

The first time I went to a San Francisco Correspondence Co-Op meeting was the group’s first anniversary party — back in 2012.  Here we are nine years later, and the co-op is now 10 years old.  We missed having our party in 2020 and finally had out first in-person gathering las month, safely, outdoors in a quiet, park.Every time we meet, one of us does an artist stamp to be shared with co-op members.  Many keep their stamps in special passports.   For our 10th anniversary we did something…See More

Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I appreciate thoughtful and creative mail art and enjoy making and sending it. Please note, if you wish to include me in any add-n-pass projects, please make sure they are something with a theme and not simply an excuse to mail flotsam and jetsam around the world. I have receive too many add-n-passes that feel like old fashioned chain letters. When those arrive, I am no longer adding and/or passing.

Mail Art Book #1

Posted on June 20, 2022 at 8:36pm 0 Comments

There is a finite amount of space in my archive boxes, but I strive to save all the mail art I receive.  Many artists include various ephemera, stickers, and other materials with their mail art.  Things I might use in pieces I create myself.  Many of the envelopes are works of art in themselves.   Starting in January 2020 I began to use much of this material for a new artist book.  I repurposed a large…

Found a few very old aerogrammes that I used to send from Istanbul and from Greece,"back-in-the-days".

So a few on their way to you, perhaps they were the earliest form of my "mail art", as there were no greeting cards to be bought back then, so I had to decorate aerogrammes!:

Thanks for the memories :-)
