Bifidus Jones's Blog – October 2011 Archive (8)

Received from Cuan Miles, South Africa--Oracular Air

Cuan has a wonderful gift for adding transparent layers to mail art. I like the flowing hair, the text, the soft paint strokes, the tape, and the faint dates conjuring up past and fleeting moments.…

Received from Richard Canard, USA--Goose Island Classic

Richard does have a point. He always has a point, a thought to ponder. Let's not stockpile anything. Let's run out of stuff and see what that feels like. Liberated, if we're lucky. Richard also sent me some terrific buffalo logos:…

This first one, in black and white, confesses that "He's got a Daytime Job He's doing alright." That's saying a lot these days. I like the doo-hinky buttons/keys and MR OFF is wonderful.…
