Halloween Poem - from Thom Courcelle


I dared and I opened :-)) Totally worth it. Thom's Halloween envelope contained a great poem full of tricks and sweets.

And look a the ghostly robe! I agree with you, Thom, Where's the Love, where's the Love...

Thank you…

"Insert Coin - Retrogaming 2011" ...We Have Mail!

Videogame is going to be the next medium to be considered an art form per se.

The “Insert Coin - Retrogaming 2011” exhibition, planned for the next December in our hometown Cosenza - southern Italy - features at the same time technological artefacts, modern, and more “traditional” works (paintings, installations and…

WOW ERNI this is major Mail Art

Wow Erni there is major Mail Art in this package.  I don't really know what to say.  All six senses are covered, and with film rights the seventh will be covered too.  This is surely several levels up from my cards.  I'll need to shift gears to even come close.  The timing is perfect, these are the last little touches for my Halloween dinners.

This work of art deserves to be seen in 12 glossy photos which I will shortly display.

Thank you very much Erni, and you really do…

New and old from RCBz


It's been a very long time without a card from RCBz. My fault only, I am afraid, I haven't sent him anything for months. So this was a very pleasant surprise in my mailbox. I like his cards, he has such a distinctive and unique style, but every time I am blogging them I am in a bit of a trouble. Where do I start? What do I say? I feel that I don't understand…

Envelope Art from Guido Vermeulen and Prettylily

Guido's "The Work of a Lifetime":


The title could be interpreted in multiple ways, like probably many of Guido's art envelopes. The man is astoundingly prolific, and that his verbal interpretive mind is right up there, always on the case along with the painter, makes everything I've received from him not only visually interesting and often beautiful (like this…
