Hedgehogs and sea lions and cat burglar kitties, OH MY!!!

SMTMA: Falling in Love with Fiorentina

As soon as Fiorentina Giannotta came onto the scene of IUOMA, I knew I needed to make supplication for her mail art. I LOVE her portraits...so much color, so much detail, so much whimsy, so many layers of texture... look how she fills the space of her canvas in the piece to the right. And the historical vestments and hair wigs, etcetera, all add to a sense of…

Year of the Rooster

The USPS Lunar New Year of the Rooster stamp is the 10th in a series by the artist Kam Mak. I really like the series which focuses on different aspects of this celebration, although it has been criticized for not featuring the zodiac animals more prominently.



You can't really say that about this year's stamp, as a rooster on a red hongbao is the main focus. There's also a gold rooster top right.



Here's one on a…
