Heebee Post #965 - Frips - Ghent - Belgium

  The languid life of the feline is luxuriously depicted in this gorgeously hued postcard from one of Mail Art's most earnest hearts for the genre, Frips.  Her love for the creatures is an ongoing theme that she returns to often, capturing an odd nobility in their sleepy behavior.  This is a common sight in my own home with my own two big cats, the Cottonpicker and Way-out Willie, likewise stretched out in the arms of Morpheus....... Great card.
I have grown quite fond of Frips while exchanging mail art over the last few years. It seems as though you get little glimpses into the nature of a fellow art correspondent with each exchange and after enough evidence is compiled, a sort of personal Mail Art profile emerges. A grand aura of togetherness often lies within Fluxus labors and such is the case with the dearly artful Frips. Thank you very much old friend and see you in the post soon! Frips Mail Art.
