Welcoming in 2020 with the very first piece of mail-art is Mr. Jon Foster (Winston-Salem, NC).
Jon Foster is one of my FAVES when it comes to m-a correspondents. He is a talented artist, a giver of ‘great shit,’ and an all around good guy! Jon has a great sense of humor, which is evident by the’ random pieces of paper’ he creates. He uses his own likeness in a number of the pieces he circulates, so it appears he does not take himself so seriously. I like that!
In the photo above we see a ‘THANK YOU For Nothing!’ card featuring Jon’s head, along with a printed note (Yeah, I’m a mail-art super buddy!). His note made me laugh, and I will say it is a terrific way to kick off 2020.
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.
From: Tim Collapse (Altamahaw, NC)
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!
In November 2018 mail came in from Catherine Kanvik, my first from her.
The Add & Pass was sent on after my adds.
Thank you, Catherine!

Today's mail included this envelope from Jon Foster. My 10th piece of mail art, and my 2nd "add & pass." These A&Ps are intimidating and challenging at the same time. I'm looking forward to trying my hand at this aspect of mail art.
Thanks so much, Jon! Love all the goodies you enclosed!!
