Received: Stamp from Angie and Snooker the Amazing Mail-Art Dog for Diane Keys' Roadkill Club (Port Washington, Wisconsin, USA)



Mail-art for IUOMA members Diane Keys (Illinois, USA) and Angie and Snooky the Amazing Mail-Art Dog (Wisconsin, USA)

November 30, 2010 - In an earlier blog I described Diane Keys' roadkill mail-art project that emerged from Rain Rien Nevermind's Recycling Mail-Art group here at the IUOMA. I was having a terrible time making something for Diane. Angie and Snooky saved the day by sending me a roadkill stamp. This wasn't enough to match the work Diane has been producing. An IUOMA friend suggested I add a touch of realism by running over the cards with my car before mailing them. That is what I am about to do. This is a before-and-after thing. The top photo is the stamped card before it was run over. Here are messages written on the cards to Diane, Angie, and Snooker before the were run over.



Angie and Snooker's card:



Here is the front of Diane Keys' mail-art after being run over by the front tire of a 2005 Subaru Outback (powered by a flux capacitor). You can see some tread, but I'm pleased about the way this came out. It can definitely be mailed. I thought the card might be destroyed:



Here is mail-art for Angie and Snooker. This came through very well. The tread pattern is different:



By the time you read this, the cards will be in the mail. I posted this mostly because I thought the cards would be destroyed. Simulated roadkill is by far preferable to real roadkill. Those who find themselves in the position should drive safely to protect themselves and the animals. Again, thank you very much Angie and Snooky the Amazing Mail-Art Dog for the cool stamp.

Snooker the Amazing Mail-Art Dog says: "Take a bite out of roadkill."

Mail-art psychic: "You will build A Home for the Monkeys." Camping. Lucky numbers 31, 18, 4

Mail-art color of the day: yellow (TYDL)

Mail-art word of the day: but (TYDW)

Leave it with me Angie, I tried collagepathy with a friend with instructions to open a certain day and time. It was water themed mail art and she'd just had a bottle of water completely leak in her bag.

I'll keep future mail art positive and rewarding just in case ;-)

Funny enough Angie I did send him space and time traveller themed mail art too... he hasn't been heard from since!

I've missed him too... maybe he's having a late holiday.

DeVillo is MIA Angie--no activity from him anywhere on social media that I could find.  worried about him

That's great. That was one complicated performance score if you think about everything involved. I brushed a little of the mud off because I started feeling badly for the postal folks. Thanks for reporting in and giving this closure, Snooks and Angie.

Oh, you mean you really did that with your car?? OMG, even better than I thought.

Angie & Snooky, glad you like this - coming to a mailbox near you soon. I have to give credit where credit is due. Cheryl Penn suggested I run over the cards with the car, which I thought was brilliant. Strangely, a collaborative piece involving a bunch of people - only I was out there on a rainy night running over cards in the driveway by myself. Wish ya'll could have been there. I'm sure you were relieved you weren't. Great fun anyway.

Awesome!! The second batch with the mud is fantastic!!
(I bet Cheryl would like to get a monkey roadkill stamp)
