Booty from Angie

Angie has been steadfast in sending me her pieces WBOB (without benefit of blog). Here are just four of the things I've received since April including but not limited to: A pair of ATCS featuring a beautiful babe (possibly Jean Shrimpton) and a blue footed booby. The model has a haptic noose around her face, the booby seems content to sit aukwardly upon his continent. Also an alphabet card constructed from signage and a large breasted lingerie model proudly deploying her voting franchise. I…

Straight Red Tango... Erni STRIKES again!

Erni is fast becoming one of my favorite people here at IUOMA.  Not only is he talented, intuitive and wise... He is most GENEROUS!

We've recently been learning more about one another. In one exchange, I told him simply that I loved a piece of his work, "Straight Red Tango." Imagine my surprise when a package arrived from Erni, containing said piece of art!…

Fantastic Giant Supermega Mail Art Parcel from Erni Bär, Germany

Luckily my neighbours were home so they could take this Giant-Supermega-very-interesting-parcel from the postman. I don't know what to say! The parcel itself is already fantastic. So thinks Troels, the ginger one.

I love the drawing in the middle and the…

Theresa Williams Small Thing #2

Theresa Williams wears a great many hats, most of her own devising. The one that sent me this is the curator of the International Museum of Small Things, a post she has held since April when Mr. Fenwick passed away and gave her, with his dying last grasp, the small key to the small museum. It exists, like many rare and exotic things, in Bradner, Ohio. In fact, on the way in to Bradner there’s a big billboard that says, “Welcome to Bradner, Home of the Giant Pickle.” Many people have lobbied…

BUCKET! from Erni Bar

     Well I am told that our housekeeper and postman had a right giggle over this one.  Apparently the postman said to our housekeeper; “Do they think we don’t have buckets in France!”

     This is no cardboard cutout.  It’s the real thing, and without an envelope!  As Erni would say; It’s 26cm (10 inches) high and 26cm (11 inches) diameter at the top.…
