"Fearful Symmetry" - XX Jones doubles down on her howling "Placerias", a mammal like reptile from the Triassic period. This card, seen in person, shows that the Placerias is surrounded by a shiny metallic silver (wouldn't scan properly) and looks pretty "Neo Triassic"! She writes "A homage to nature, art and science - represented by Blake's fearful symmetry and Darwin's tree of life" - (reverse side). And check out that wonderful "Time to wake up" artistamp. Perfect.
Miss Jones also included included these three A4 sized Edgar Rice Burroughs's "Tarzan" panels. These gorgeous illustrations are super examples of artist Burne Hogarth's work. He drew the Tarzan Sunday page in newspapers for 12 years (1937- 1945 and 1947 - 1950) but, it has been reprinted many times. With Tarzan, Hogarth brought together Classicism, Expressionism and Narrative into a new form of dynamic sequential art. His teaching to art students often included odd thoughtful study: "Paint me this sound: A spider walking on it's web - what is the music of that sound?".
XX Jones also included a long note that I thoroughly enjoyed. I don't publish notes - they are regarded as personal - but, I can tell you it was one of the nicest notes I have received. She asked me a few questions which I shall answer in subsequent mail back to her in Austria. Thank you very much Miss Jones - you made my day! See you in the mail my new friend. See her thoughtful mail art site: Word and Image. And her XX Jones IUOMA blog.

Mail Art - The Romantic Paper Sport for everybody that has imagination with heart!
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". Ahhhhhh, yes. Remember: Senders receive! Test Tower / 1365 Centralia-Alpha Rd. / Chehalis, WA / 98532 USA

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. ********************************************
