Fluxus High School

What better way to spend a lazy summer afternoon than going through your school yearbook.  Or for me, cutting up some old yearbooks and making about 200 ATCS to mail out for a new series for the Fluxus High School Yearbook.See More

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

I appreciate thoughtful and creative mail art and enjoy making and sending it.

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 :-)
