Received Art Mail Request - SDG (Italia)

I received a lovely handmade letter from an Italian MA enthusiast today requesting that I submit work to his new initiatives - Friends of MA and Something of Strange. Strange I can do without a problem :). I've posted his letter below for other MA's to submit if interested and documented the piece I returned to him. I think it's strange. …

Received Art Mail - Felker Wrap Package #2

MA Felker (WA) and myself are sending art back and forth re-wrapping the original postal item. He started with a beautiful envelope (already documented in My Photos) and returned with an origianl set of prints. He has now mailed me this aromatic banana sticker encrusted package. A ticket from the Iain Baxter show @ the SAM was attached plus a beautiful lighthouse stamp - same style as the first one he sent me.

I'm pondering how to respond and return.

Where will this end? I'm… Continue

Received Art Mail - RCBZ

MA RCBZ sent me a lovely personal Souvenir Sheet of James Joyce themed stamps. Signed and shipped in a plain wrapper, I was thrilled to discover these inside. As a stamp enthusiast and a former hard core philatelist (hmmm, a good name for a movie) - I love stamps of all kinds. Great work by RCBZ.

I made my first set of stamps a few days ago. They are nothing special, just some clip art of a hen that I recoloured for each one. I was inspired by my two hens, Inara and Shelley, to create a new currency: eggs! 1be means that the stamp is worth one bantam egg. I will make higher priced stamps which will cost a bre, or a black rock egg. (Shelley being a bantam, and Inara, a black rock hen.)

I wanted to have somewhere for my stamps to have come from, so I named my "post"…

Mailing Addresses - Contact List

I also belong to a site in Germany that does not have the robust visual features of this group - nor the camaraderie - but it does has a host of mailing addresses and contact info for artists. I noticed that a number of IUOMA members are cross posted and/or listed there - but it may be new to those not aware of it.…

Received Art Mail - Pajomo

Printed art card MA from Pajomo in WA. Handmade artstamp and personal message on reverse. He is lamenting the loss of his database. Its one of the reasons I keep mine as a hard copy. I love my MACs (including my new IPAD) but journalling and MA addresses are a tactile, hand-written craft.

I love the tone of the paer (best appreciated in person) and the airbrush style of…
