Heebee Post #1135 - Eddie Nero - Eugene, Oregon - USA

 Eddie Nero checks into Heebee Jeebeeland with this vibrantly striped ticket. A pretty good dazzler from the classy artist.

It sure was fun meeting him at the XPF extravaganza in San Francisco last Feb. Eddie has a cool vibe packed nicely into his persona and I immediately sensed it. I couldn't seem to get enough time to chat at length with the splendid turnout of super Mail Artists and Philatelic geniuses. I hope to visit Mr. Nero  in Oregon in the future.- if the Mail Art stars are aligned. Let's make our own destinies - we'll line then up and have a time of it! Some folks seem like old friends.

 Eddie''s reverse side shows how diligent the USPS actually is. I'm glad they saved it from my old address. I love his clever range of artistamps.

Hitman Post is Eddie's brianchild and comes in many forms. I like Muhammed Ali's quote "A Man who views the world the same at fifty as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life".

The frog goes nicely with the top panel.  Lovely stamp old boy. Thanks Eddie, Be seeing you in the mail soon!

Heebee Post #1134 - Sally Wurlitzer - San Francisco, California - USA

 Good natured and wonder woman artist, Sally W sends this, peculiar to the point of being some kind of scary,  postcard. I have just seen the film  "The Gangs of New York" and these bug chuckers look like one of those nasty gangs. Heh.  I was fortunate enough to have met the clever Sally at the XPF last year in San Francisco last Feb, by Jack Lattemann of Cascadia Artpost , my pal from up here in the Northwest. I have since then become a big fan of her work. Sally really rocks with just about anything she does. I love the SF artists I met down there, especially the bunch of lovely SF women that were putting the unforgettable affair together.  I have always liked San Franciscan gals anyway! Once again, I salute you!
Note the "Posted by Wurlitzer World" rubber stamping. I always like to call it Voylitzer Voyld for some reason. Heh-heh. Anyway she writes "Rubberstamping from the Awesome Cascadia Artpost". I should also mention the texture of the piece is a sort of tough old-time poster card style. It has a good feel to it too. Thanks Sally, glad to have met you and see ya in the mail old girl! Check out Sally's incredible work here. Wurlitzer World.

Heebee Post #1133 - Phillip - Columbus, Ohio - USA

 "Alien Worlds" postage is a Classic Science Fiction, "First Day of Issue", that stands out among it's peers giving it a universal sense of importance

I love "First Day of Issue creations, especially when the ambiguity level leaves the viewer scratching his head in silent wonder - and in First class no Less!
 It is difficult to determine which side is front and which is the back of the enigmatic postcard +- although the fellow seen on this artistamp seems both curious, brave and adventuresome - as well as only 1/4 the power of Mail Art that the "Alien Worlds" posseses.

And thank you for your kind words Phillip. Made my day! And yes, I do enjoy Faux Philatelics - to the point of diversion.

I'll be seeing you in the mailbox soon Phillip. "Alien Worlds" rules!
