Mail art collabs by IUOMA members Rebecca Guyver (Suffolk, UK) and Diane Keys (Elgin, Illinois, USA)
May 8, 2015 - In March, I first shared doodle collaborations by Rebecca Guyver and Diane Keys that have created such a sensation especially in the Trashpo/DKult community.
The doodles represent an exciting alliance of DKULTUK and DKult’s Elgin headquarters. Rebecca Guyver circulated the work diligently. Now I have received a batch of colorized doodles that provide an entirely new perspective on the originals. (Make sure to click the scans to see enlargements.)
These came in a TLP (Tacky Little Pamphlet) that I disassembled in an effort to obtain better scans.
This, to the best of my recollection, is Rebecca Guyver's first venture into the venerable TLP (Tacky Little Pamphlet) genre made famous and best-known today through the work of John M. Bennett (Ohio, USA) and allegedly invented by Wild Billy Haddock in the 1970s. I think the color is absolutely FAB! The original doodles appear to have been modified making this remix even more worthy of a close perusal.
Rebecca Guyver also kindly included additional material in the mailing:

Note that the work above is identified as scannerpo.
I am thrilled to have received this update. Whether Rebecca Guyver is planning to visit the USA this summer and further advance the sail art movement is unknown at the moment. I do encourage you to stay current with her via her blog, which is emerging as one of the more thorough and comprehensive mail art blogs that is currently active:
