Nice to see the torch of celebration for the mundane being examined without the tarnished helmet of cynicism being worn. Karen and I have swapped a few mail arts since our brief meeting at the Ex Postal Facto in San Francisco last Feb. This one got under my skin; but then, I am a soft touch anyway.Thanks Ms. Chew, be seeing you in the mail!

Mail Art Bon Vivant and Russian postal statesman Shimanovsky is a fun loving, high humored artist usually more into some kind of joke telling, instead of showing off what a state of affairs things are getting to be in his country, at least at the Ukrainian border - even if most Russian folks love Vlad Putin. A little surprised, that's all. It sure would be nice to just entirely overlook the sometimes gruesomeness of our world and just have unbridled fun.
Valery's "Bunny-Head" rubber stamping is cool too - Wonder If Ray (Johnson) ever did get to see one of these from our distinguished Russian friend? I think about things like that. Anyway, thank you very much Vallery, hope I didn't get you in some sort of trouble and see ya in the mail old boy. Vallery Shimanovsky Mail Art.
