October and November brought two postcards from France.
Pascal Coupechoux (Chablis, France) usually adorns his cards with original drawings. Ephemera scraps are used as collage elements.
Received two lovely postcard from Cherub Ayers (Oxford, OH) in July:
The first postcard features sea life (the postage stamp matches perfectly). I love the texture and 3D elements. Cherub used decoupage, watercolor, ink, label and sealant to make the card.
Back in February (geez, where has the time gone!) I received my very first mail from Allison Leonard (Hutchins, TX).
It is a postcard featuring a glossy photo of a St. Francis garden statue.
Does the name JDIMYTAI DAMOUR ring a bell? No? That’s alright if it doesn’t, but I’m hoping after you read this you will never forget him. I know I won’t.
Mail Artist Tim Collapse sent this commemorative postcard to me. I received it the day before Thanksgiving; two days before Black Friday.
In this last quarter of 2019 I received two postcards from the talented Tim Collapse (Altamahaw, NC). The one I’m featuring in this blog post was received in September. It is a vintage postcard of the Chicago Creek Road (Colorado) which has been altered with four strips of paper, each a different color and design. With the scenic postcard picture still visible, Tim’s add-ons give it a whole new texture.
Stay tuned for a post on the second card I received from Mr. Collapse. Thanks a bunch, Tim!
Here’s more mail from Jack at Cascadia Artpost (Olympia, WA):
A postcard from March, “Library Card No. 1,” featuring some of the best known mail art books (I own four of the books shown).
Another postcard from October pays homage to EX POSTO FACTO’S “Fluxus Bucks,” which turned 25 in 2019.
Great mail from Cascadia Artpost! Thanks, Jack!
Received August 14, 2019: two pieces of mail from Atte Ourie, a fellow IUOMA-ning member from Finland.
Many thanks to Atte Ourie!
In November I made 15 mixed media tags to send to fellow mail artists. It took a few weeks to complete the series, and I mailed out the first batch on November 26. The remaining tags were dropped in the mail box this afternoon.
To achieve the look of these cards, I did the following:
The tags were mail to the following mail artists:
Jayne Barket Lyons, Mail Artist and Collector of Stuff.
