Heebee Post #830 - Stan Askew - Pasadena, CA - USA
Stan is a long time, popular mail artist and the excellent composition you see above is a prime example of his distinguished work. This postcard seems to have captured a sense of fear within the tangle of bramble, as if peering too deeply into, there may be no returning from the sinister growth. Fantastic card Stan - among my top favorites from you.
Side B of the card consists of some interesting imagery - The officer and his consort, both wanting to get rid of an issue between themselves and get back together. Or perhaps I am putting too much into this. The card does have an interesting appeal to it.
These two fabulous vintage postcards show off a pleasurable lifestyle had by the affluent in beautiful desert surroundings. Both are printed in "Curteichcolor" a chrome printing process. Made somewhere between the late 1950's to the early 1960's. Both are gorgeous and show off a lavish lifestyle
And two more for my growing collection of vintage cards. The top one printed in the "Ternitone Process" is a swimming pool for "Furnished Apartments for gracious living" in Palm Springs, CA. The marvelous bottom card is Bob Hope's pool, also in Palm Springs. Circa late 1950's - early 1960's.
Tweedle Dee and his companion both adorned in Stan's trademark eternal "8" sign decorate the envelope nicely and baseball stamps are a nice touch as well. Thank you very much Stan - I love your work and the vintage postcards are much appreciated. See you in the mail old chum.

September 17 - 2013: "Every human being is intended to have a character of his own; to be what no other is, and to do what no other can do." - Channing. One of the best uses of originality is to say common things in an uncommon way. Mail Art lends itself nicely to this lane of thought. In fact, if you would like to continue down that noble lane, Mail Art creation is a perfect venue for a display of originality - and "If you create something, you must be something" - Goethe. So, let's be a "Something" and have some fun as well. Heebee Jeebeeland welcomes all you "Somethings". The 4th Dimension is the perfect place for all you "Somethings that create something". Anything. And, if you will be absolutely silent in your mind for a moment and listen carefully, you can just hear the dreamy strains of Judy Garland singing that glorious tune "Something over the Rainbow".

Welcome to Heebee Jeebeeland
When I was a kid, there was an old cartoon I saw many times on TV. While a child was sleeping, the unusual wallpaper all over his room came to life and began to dance back and forth, up and down in a rather fanciful symmetry accompanied by a sort of goofy graveyard mischief music. All manner of mayhem went on until the sun shone again at dawn and the dancing pranksters rushed back to their original spots and the wallpaper became still again. It is in the vicinity of that realm that Heebee Jeebeeland exists. Please send Mail Art that needs to live here and be shown on this blog. ********************************************
