Heebee Post #729 - Jennifer Kosharek - St. Petersburg, Florida - USA

 It sure is a pleasure to have my old friend Jen back in Heebee Jeebeeland sharing this very puzzling evidence of a postcard with us all. I had to do a little homework on this one and here is what I found out. The enthusiastic fellow on the left is none other than the Los Angeles legend Father Yod, leader of the Source Family. These guys lived communally in the Hollywood Hills to record their improvised psychedelic music and sell their underground records in their popular Vegetarian Source Restaurant in L.A. - mostly during the 1970's - although some of these recordings are resurfacing and/or are being reissued even now. It is an interesting touch to have the luscious Marilyn Monroe, adorned in a sexy cabaret outfit, in sharp contrast to 'His Yodship'. As if the 'Yin and the Yang' (Yod) are like bookends of the full spectrum of life. Am I getting close Jen? Great card!
Jennifer and I have exchanged many mini-masterpieces of mail art over the years and I have enormously enjoyed being her friend for a long while now. There may be some artists where friendship transcends the artistic endeavors and this is one of them. Not to mention Ms. Kosharek is an indefatigable workhorse of an artist, craftsman and business woman -  and a fun person to know! Jen is the owner/operator of the smart Art shop "Eve-n-Odd Gallery", who has just celebrated their first year of being open. Congrats darlin'! You can also find her running her mail art site here: J. Kosharek's Mail Art.  Thanks and see you in the post Jen.
