Heebee Post #1105 - Stan Askew - Pasadena, California - USA
I am really starting to grok what Stan is doing in these precision crafted mixes of colorful Southern Californian mystic mayhem. Here, on the reverse side, Stan is back to using his usual penchant for the number 8 (also the sign for eternity or moreover, eternal love).
I cannot help but, to wonder - Isn't this a sort of prophetic, dream-like scenario for Ukraine's unsettling future. This is really Askew gold - rich in innuendo. And if it is regarding Ukraine, who is this fellow supposed to be? Hmmmm.....
He and I had swapped postal goodies for quite a few years now and we shared a rather mutual admiration. Shaking his hand, it seemed as if we were long lost friends meeting again after a long separation
. Click on this image for an another vintage linen card - this time the magnificent buildings that comprised a 1940's San Diego. This is a Tichnor Art Co. postcard.
Frida Kahlo, the famous Mexican artist adorns this lovely artistamp.
"Stephanie Knows Who" (make sure it's loud). To see more of Mr. Askew's work: Photo Askew. See ya in the you know what!
