Richard Canard embraces "Erniness" (Carbondale, Illinois, USA)

Mail-art by IUOMA member Richard Canard (Carbondale, Illinois, USA)

 

November 23, 2013 - Sometimes in mail-art you find you are only a messenger, perhaps serving a higher purpose, perhaps not. For whatever reason, our much beloved veteran correspondent Richard Canard sent me Erni mail-art. I cannot even speculate why I was chosen but dutifully share it with you.

You see, of course, Richard has altered the OVERNIGHTER mail envelope to read: O ERNI. Clever!

Very nice writing! As ever, thank you, Richard!

Most of your early work arrived postage due. Maybe not all.

DK, I was going through old files. I think it's the first mail-art you ever sent me (postage due).

the evolution of my attitude girl.  All she ever wanted to do in life was make pies, but the world kept telling her that wasn't ambitious enough. They called her overqualified, underemployed, a rose colored glasses wearer, but she followed her dream and made the perfect pie.

Remember G-Man told us: "I am the Love Machine." He's out there, somewhere.

Certainly, sometimes the fun is in the interpretation. Overall, I see it as positive or I would not have blogged it.

It is nice to see old friends talking.
