Outgoing to De Villo Sloan (USA) – September 16th 2017

Because I know De Vilo Sloan now for quite some time, I always like to surprise him with some new mailings that I also document. Normally I don’t publish the straight away on facebook of the IUOMA network, because he is there too and the surprise would be spoiled. This blog isn’t often visited by the network. It is more of an archive that is picked up by Google and hopefully will stay alive longer since I pay for the hostig myself and use the main domain name http://www.iuoma.org which is already quite old.

For the letter to him I use a print of an in-between version of a drawing I made. Because I scan the works I make, and also save in-between versions, thay are pinted out also, and used as a writing paper like this. I stamped randomly some words in it to add to the letter and used a bit the chaos-theory where the colour was more important then the words.

The large “appoved’ stamp I used to set the date as well, but I already did that when I used the working typewriter I have here in Breda when I started writing the note to De Villo Sloan. The envelope this letter goes into is an acrylic painted envelope. Will fit nicely in the collection De Villo already has of me. Somehow I like it to when the envelopes are a bit concentrated on several places.
