To make the right photo, I had to hold this card by Richard Carard (USA) in the sun to let it shine like it should…. Thank you Richard for sharing these thoughts again.
When I look back I see I have been drawing for quites some decades now. Since most of the drawings are digitized too, it has become easy to make an overview of the collection. In a new blog I am now publishing an overview where you can search by Title and also by year, so you can see how the works have developed over the years. I know where the.. Read More
A fine card again from Richard Canard who send his cards on a regular basis. This time also mentioning Trashpo.I agree with Richard, we keep on doing Mail-Art without knowing why….. I made the photo’s of his card right outside the Postal Office (actually a copy shop wher PostNL has a place for input and output). The neighbors are an Art-Gallery, and that gives some nice effects to this mail-art.. Read More
Ryosuke Cohen has been doing his Brain Cells since 1985, and this year the 1000th issue is expected. I estimate that I have about 400-500 of his Brain Cells in the TAM Archive, including that very first one also. Today I decided to write him a letter and use the typewriter for that. Because Ryosuke always chooses an image for including on his Brain Cell I always make sure he.. Read More

It is more of an archive that is picked up by Google and.. Read More
Some samples of mail-Art that went out in September 2017:
Front and back view of an object that got ready yesterday. I used the 3D pen I got from the firm Karsten, and as you can see it works smoothly and well.
From the firm Karsten (see link below text) I received a new 3D pen to test. They included also a lot of Filament, so that will be an interesting test. Above you see the pen and the in-between result of the object I am working on. The pen works very well indeed. It is faster then the MyRiwell 3D pen I normally use. The nozzle is a bit smaller, so..

In 2017 I got these catalogs of Mail-Art project in the mail. Above a project done by the Stickerdude (Joel Cohen) in NY – USA, and below two catalogs that Uli Grohmann (Germany) did. Although a lot goes digital thee days, the hardcopies are still my favorites. You can go through the pages, and digitize them, but the booklet will survive the times for sure whuile the digital images go.. Read More
