Fat Steve the "Sleve" says Do it!!!

I have to admit I have been too terrified to do anything more with this art. I have added to the coffee sleeve as instructed by Dkult's resident bad ass gangster Fat Steve "The Sleve" (no one knows the true origin of his name and no one dares ask)--how could I not with a bomb pointing at me? The problem I now have, is that Nadine did not tell me what to do with this Charbucks…

Mail Art from Padua, Italy from Maria Teresa Cazzaro

I thought this piece was from Susan McAllister originally. I find this piece  so well conceived and fascinating in its' precision and detail. I could honestly look at it for hours and wish it was a poster size. It is calmling as everything fits neatly contained in its own space, unlike life that gets way out of line…

My week in mail art blogjam

Dean tells me that his wife is his greatest inspiration-if she tells him to throw something in the bin, it gives him the idea to make art out of it. I like thinking of his wife as the human trashpo detection system-what is garbage to her, is art to us. I don't…

Innocent Image and Don't Ask

Cheryl sent me cross section of a 'massacred' larger work along with a photo of the entire piece. It is beautiful and smells deliciously of paint. Below is a piece from Svenja Wahl and she has written "Don't Ask" on the back.I can only speculate as to what she means, but it definately makes me WANT to ask. She has adhered this delicate paper to the back of some plastic-such a…

Plans Drawn for Trashpo ClubHouse

Plans appear to be copywritten by Texas Taco Cabana. It sure does look cozy and already lived in--by grungy mechanics and fast food workers. David has uncovered a dirty little DKult secret-that it evolved from a Taco Cabana Turquoise cup, and NOT the beautiful…

Mother/Son Collaboration

The title for this piece from Kerri Pullo is "Figurative Languages What's Eating you?"The asemic ips effectiveness cartoon says it all as this trashp-asemic collaboration between her son and her, is very effective. I love every little well thought out detail. I feel Kerri pulls from deep in her unconscious when creating and the depth…

An Envelope Within an Envelope from Oman

M. Nidham sent this and I'm not sure if the first one was returned or what, but it was a double bonus for me as I received twice as much art and beautiful stamps!

Trashpo Mail Art Show Entries from Katerinna Nikoutsou and Jim SantAmour

two new entries posted on my blog.

Kat, the Queen of Po=integration has combined shredpo, sandopo, listpo, squishedcanpo, choco glam-and synthesized it into a fabulous trashpo montage.

Jim Sant amour's style is unmistakable in this trashpo made from bits and pieces of his scraps.

Dani Street's First Trashpo Piece

I love her purposeful and sparing use of trash bits and I've heard of that fabric that reveals images when you sweat-like a workout incentive I think. Love this Rockette tribute thanks Dani!

Worried Tree from Claudia McGill

Claudia writes, "What? Me Worry?" as the caption for the awesome Picasso-esque tree. I am totally fascinated by Claudia's painting technique. I'm really not sure how she achieves this look. She makes it look effortless, and that it is created on trashpo puts it over the top. Thank you for another masterpiece…

Overworked Postman by Niklas Heed

I like the asemic writing on the envelope and this poor overworked postman--doesn't he know we are waiting for our mail? Niklas' drawing skills are out of this world. This recent series is incredible. Thank you!

From Kingpins 1 of ?

Received this piece from KingPins in his now infamous plastic boxes. It was accordian folded and devoted to the famouse Elgin Watch. I live in the Elgin Historic Watch District so this was perfect. And he has included the riverboat casino that is just up the street-he has done his homework. He promises this piece is 1 of ? which hopefully means many more to come. Thank…
