In the 90-ies lots of mail-artists were creating Fluxus Bucks. Just Google for it, and find out lots of them. I made a series of them too and found the originals which I documented. I used to make lots of versions and sent them out into the network. Who knows where they ended up?
On the old www.iuoma.org website I also documented some of my art. Always with low resolution, and not that good to look at. I am now placing the images in better resolution. Just click on them and see them full size. All made with acrylic paint on canvas. Size 60×40 and larger. These were exhibited too.
In 2014 I received this wonderful prize from Sweden. See for all the details their website: http://www.theshapethatchangedtheworld.com/ Ruud Janssen is a fluxus artist engaged in mail art.
