Always like art with warning labels-it adds to the suspense. Got this great envelope from her packed full of interesting bits and pieces. My favorite is the instructional pamphlet on how to do a zine bomb: she shows how to make these A4/8 pages in one 8X10 sheet on the underside of hers. I just learned how to make this about a month ago and it definately saves on printing…Continue

In mai I was participating in Val's mysterious-jigsaw-puzzle-project. I received puzzle pieces from different puzzles and so did other Mail Artist. I sent the pieces to Katerina, wrapped in blue Ikea-paper. She made these beautiful blue islands card. Recycling is fun! Thank you…Continue
a beautiful water color from Nadine...only a mother's love <3
Now I will have to put on my starched white shirt and dress slacks and go door-to-door to pass out my pamphlets and discuss the saving grace of DKult [art]...
All of this paraphernalia arrived stuffed in a Kane County Jury Commission envelope--repurposed and re-addressed to me. (I hope our DKult leader isn't shirking her civic duties by sending her jury summons…Continue
Another colourful piece of Mail Art that raises questions. Carina went to Kristinestad in Finland, to take this beautiful picture. It is from a biograph. The tickets may suggest she had to take a plane to do this project. Very intriguing. Thank you, Carina.
I went home to see my mom (age 96) a few weeks ago and I noticed a Mockingbird singing away at the top of a telephone pole in front of her house. He sang for (what seemed) like five hours straight (with breaks for water and insects). I thought, “Now there’s a guy who likes the sound of his own voice.” Birders will interject, “but it’s not his voice. It’s a compendium of bird songs plus whatever other sounds he fancies.” True dat. But five hours! This is like Barbra Streisand singing for an…Continue

230 postcards by Education students at the University of Roehampton! This was a project involving 46 students, me (Sue Smedley) and Andy Hoang. Each student made 5 postcards to represent something they remember from school - dinnertimes, playtimes, friends, teachers, school trips... lots of different experiences and emotions and lots of discussion about what is important in education. The postcards weren't judged or assessed. The Launch Event yesterday, was attended by students, lecturers,…Continue

Look at these here:
Bigger and better collages than I`m used to making!
These were done in preparation for an exchange/collaboration with Hugh Brisman (http://wearefuxus.blogspot.ca/) who is a sticker artist from America. It's uncommon for me to work so large, but I got into it, and I love it. I can thank Hugh for forcing me to push my boundries.
Here's a few collages I made, excluding the ones I am sedning to Hugh, as I don't…Continue

Lisa sent me these paper dolls-some disembodied legs and feet, so I added some things to make them complete. The baby arrived without clothes, so I put them on the poor thing only to realize that he was a diabolical tyrant pulling Barbie's string and threatening to overturn DKult. I'm sure Lisa had no idea of this when she popped the cherub in the mail. I used to love paper…Continue
