ATCs in the Mail

The best part of sending out Artist Trading Cards is the trading.  And after sending our a round of National Park-themed ATCs recently, I am started to receive more in return.
This first batch includes ones from:
  1. William Mellott
  2. Cuan Miles
  3. Fleur Helsingor

And now it is time to get back to the new series I am working on, stay tuned…..

Incoming Mail Art - April

There has been a steady flow of mail art arriving as well as a good deal out going in the past few weeks.  There have been artists stamps, ATCs (more later) and these that are just a sample of some recent arrivals:
  1. Meral Agar sent this Modigliani-inspired piece form Istanbul.
  2. A new collage piece from Jennifer Utter.
  3. Gina Visione is still celebrating the Lunar New Year (nothing wring with that).
  4. Another altered postcard from Pamela Gerard.  This time Burgundy.
  5. A new series from Carolyn Oord (aka Kerosone) in Quebec — Cheese Cloth.
  6. Gregg Biggs is sending out Springtime for Elvis mail art – I am not sure if that was the intended title.
  7. Julie Crossman is celebrating the springtime phases of the moon.
  8. A new pink piece from Dean Marks arrived from Paris.
  9. Two new sublime pieces from e. coles.  I now have this wonderful collection.
  10. More amazing work from Cuan Miles in South Africa.
Below are a sheet of artists stamps from C. Mehrl Bennett as well as large, printed sheet of rubber stamps from Ryosuke Cohen.
