Heebee Post #874 - Otto D Sherman (Part #1) - New York, New York - USA

 Otto's cast of nefarious looking fellows should make for a tough 'spy ring'  for the Squid Patrol to 'sweep up'.  Otto's artistamps appear as if in a 'line up' to be 'found out' and identified. Fantastic work - like a 4th Dimensional "Casa Blanca" -  very entertaining!
 Some of these characters are a bit more sinister than the others. This fellow (Joseph Goebbels?) looks more suspicious the more I peer at him.  Super artistamp!
 Otto is quite versatile with different printing techniques.  The above panel is actually quite large (18" x 10") and very delicately printed on a fine tissue paper. It is rather amazing seen in person - tender and beautiful! These are some large rubber stampings.
Seen above are both sides of Otto's envelope. I am a big fan of his work and am glad to receive this great stuff. Although the next posting shall prove to be the real show stopper!  Thank you very much Otto - If you haven't been to Otto's Art site, it is recommended that you do: Otto Art - Badges and Stamps.
-----  And I think I should be terribly remiss if I did not mention the dreadful circumstances unfolding in Otto's wonderful city.  The "Super Storm" has sea water into the subway system, 3 1/2 million without power (for days to come too) and Manhattan and much of New York and the east coast are just getting battered and flooded by the wicked "Sandy", the 'Super Storm'.  Our west coast hearts and minds are with you my friend!
