I received this last week from Dean as part of his "Mail Art On The Road" adventure. Dean rode his bicycle from Paris to London for the Jubilee. Joined in a Mail Art Meet Up in London. Hung out with Mail Art Martha and Zombie Kitty Kawaii! (Mark 2). So, you are probably asking yourselves, what is the big old mystery in all of this? Check out the back of the postcard and then check out the stamps. Could this be one of the famous "Mail Art Hit and Runs"?
Anyway, I love Mail Art Mysteries and I thank you for this one, Dean.
You are right, what a great idea. If you ever get to watch a film called "Catfish" you are in for a treat, actually scare.
But sorry, no Americans were filmed or harmed during the mailing.
OH yes, American stamps. I had a lot of them, so I looked up the US postage rate and put them on my mail art and carried them around London. When I saw an American, (which you can tell by a mile), I would speak to the person. D: "Hi, are you American? Tourist: "Yes, we are from Ohio" D:"That's by Texas & New York right? Tourist:"OH no, it's by Bowling Green" D: "Well I'm a mail Artist" Tourist: "OH MY GOD, Betty, he's an artist" D: "Well not real ..." Tourist: "We never met an Artist before, can we take our pictures with you" D: "But I'm not a real arti ..." Tourist: "Oh come on, the people back home will want to see this" D: "Well OK, I guess it won't hurt" Tourist: "Snap, Snap ... Snap, Snap" D: "Do you think you could mail one of my pieces when you get back home? Tourist: "OH MY GOD yes, that would be awsome." D: "Thank you very much" Tourist: "Can you tell us about that building?" D: Yes, that's the London Tower, but it's new. I was by here last week, and it wasn't there.
