Incoming: Lubomyr Tymkiv and Cascadia Artpost

A fun card from Lubomyr. Seems a bit vispo to me(which i dig). I love that evil whale(shark?) stamp in particular. There's something special about getting a card or envelope that is so covered with postage stamps that there's almost no room for the address.

A new card from Cascadia Artpost asking/highlighting important questions.

Robin, of course!  Nyet means "not yet" doesn't it?

Comment by De Villo Sloan on September 27, 2019 at 8:55pm

Hmm... Bradford has always struck me as being acrylic.

I'm mystified....Do I understand correctly that you're in the Ukraine, Bradford? And you can read cyrillic?

jayne, DVS causing trouble? isn't that what mail art is all about? :)

Comment by Bradford on September 26, 2019 at 9:06pm

No protest.  Just marveling at the antics.

Bradford "doth protest too much" that he is not our mysterious Ukrainian correspondent?

Comment by Jayne Barket Lyons on September 26, 2019 at 8:35pm

William - is our dear DVS causing trouble here? Haha!

Wow! Much happens from morning to morning when I check in here.  Apparently someone fired up the transmorgrifier to occasion the blending of identities.  The address I provided for the Ukrainian artist, Пан Тимків, was gleaned from good ol' Fraenz Frisch's site wherein he posted a participant's list and artwork for a call.

I have never contacted Пан Тимків, nor acted on his behalf.  I can attest to his gender which is male based his given name although I might generally refer to him as Sir Ryllic.

I would also think that it's never meant to be malicious. My impression is that its focus is more on inventiveness, having fun - sometimes in strangely oblique ways - and just doing some blatantly dumb things at times. Unexpectedly beautiful results also tend to be a byproduct.
