May 13, 2015 - Not since the days when folks such as Blaster Al and David Zack mailed out fake solicitations for disabled children’s scholarship funds in order to raise beer money do I know of anyone who has donated real money to a mail art charity scam – until now. Sinclair Scripa – aka Tanya – a winner of the Who Has The Best Hair Contest no less – has made a contribution to KDJ’s liver transplant fund, which of course is a fiction. I am confident “Tanya” knows this and the dollar is really being donated for artistic purposes. And Tanya freed herself from more worldly burdens:

Tanya is making a reference here to the “Send Ca$h” internet scam currently being run by former Neoist Stewart Home. Again, the scam being run by Stewart Home, I am confident, is performance art, as is Tanya’s response.

I am entirely sure that this mailing does not constitute some sort of paid advertising upon my humble blog. So I leave it to you to compose disclaimers in your fertile minds. Sinclair Scripa-Tanya included a charming, crumpled, slightly non-linear rant involving Moan Lisa and some dolls:

Some wonderful art is found on the reverse side:

Here is another lovely piece by Sinclair Scripa:

I removed a rubber whoopee cushion that was attached because I felt it did not meet our standards of decorum.

Note: Due to complaints received, a scan of the whoopee cushion included in the mailing is now added:

The painted envelope is excellent as well:

Sinclair Scripa-Tanya uses the envelope as a place to celebrate the great (sadly deceased) Russian mail artist Pig DaDa.
