I know, however, that I mean "Screw it!" when I used the screw in a recent batch of Artistamps I created - shown here, in all it's splendor. Coincidence? You know, I recently read somewhere that there are no coincidences - it's just God, winking at you!

Jack Lattermann seen hard at work creating mail art from his well stocked Cascadia Artpost traveling kit. This postcard was created for the popular "Mayworks" mail call, Ed Varney's annual international event. The theme this year was an "Artist Self Portrait" at work. The card is marked and dated: September 2012 - Amsterdam. He is in a hotel room - see the little coffee machine in the corner? I love a good traveling Mail Art kit. And yes, I never leave town without similar paraphernalia! Good show Jack!Cascadia Artpost.

I really like this "High Concept" rubber stamping. Mail Art is at it's best when a "Cerebral Sacrifice" is made. Similar to Keith Buchholz's description of himself as a "Concept Wrangler".
I found this photo of the French Cruiser "Gloire" in a 1945 "Science Illustrated" magazine. This was the first major vessel to use the Adapter Pattern.
"Felix the Cat
The wonderful, wonderful Cat.
Whenever he gets in a fix
He reaches out for his bag of tricks".
This TV show came out in 1960 and I was absolutely enchanted by him as a child. Thanks for the memory Sigrid!

Doesn't my cousin Art Tower look handsome and contemplative atop an article written about him and his "Head Project".. For many years, Gunter has been painting heads. Enough heads (2,000) to construct a huge wall of them for his exhibition. He is actually in the midst of completing the "Head Project", for it will require 3,006 heads, the amount of those that perished in the 09/11 Twin Towers tragedy in NYC. Gunter was so moved by the 2001 destruction and loss of innocent lives, he has chosen to paint all 3006 of them for a grand memorial in tribute.

Suddenly, even the Name "Eva" begins to sound more adventurous, secretive, .....international intrigue! Somethings going on with Eva alright - And don't we just love it, a universe within a universe. Kamphuis is honing down the power to fascinate - to a nearly exact science.
Thank you Herman - Love, Love Love t! See you quite soon in the mystery, I mean Post Box!
