Post’d: Round-up of letters and post making, vol. 2 (undated, variety)

a big ole batch all ready to make their journeys into the world

Sure, i mail a lot of cards and letters and dossiers of ephemeral treats, poems and painting. Especially to folks who have inspired me or otherwise lent a hand, and to folks (know and unknown) who seem to need a little spark to help them along their journey.

oh! the be an explorer… (envoys to distant lands)

As part of my semi-obsessive documentation for my memory and amusement, ,i assemble photos (likely) enthusiastic correspondents send of their received items, along with  “still life” photos of postal-related items or post-in-process, and often just scenes of post offices/workers/boxes.

Often times these items are organized chronologically-ish somehow, or maybe to a theme, but some cases (including this instance), neither applies and what follows is simply a batch of odds and ends hanging out for another cycle into the world.

Generally an absence of annotations as the meanings either aren’t meaningful or rather self-evident (that said, maybe some annotations will appear). Carry on, bring your own stamp.

Post’d: Round-up of mailed items, etc, vol. 1 (generally 2018~2019)

Poet Adam in Utah hills enjoy his letter with a can

As i mail a lot of items, well also just write cards and letters to hand-deliver as well i suppose, i try to document bits and pieces for my amusement and archive including photos enthusiastic correspondents send of their received dossiers, “still life with postal” related items, and post offices/boxes. 

Often times these items are organized chronologically-ish somehow, or maybe to a theme, but in this case, neither applies and this is simply a batch of odds and ends hanging out – possibly waiting for another cycle into the world. So zoom zoom go around again (for my own amusement you see). 

Before leaving Sanur, left some special notes for the fine young ladies who look out for me (as Vincent, a Mae Maes CD, a literal laundry list and a dragon fruit look on), also cash

Invitations in process and post / Dave + Ryoko 4-20 Kekkon-shiki

I kinda enjoy letting projects get outta hand (some call this “scope creep”) and what started as sending out a few dozen handmade announcement card packets has turned into at least 6 tranches of mailouts. The contents and packaging varied significantly as the batches were sent from different countries, using different printers (pro and home) and different iterations of items.

The (possibly) last batch was mailed from Japan – of course not in time for folks to book at trip but we are at the maximum size anyhow (93+ confirmed!) but importantly, i wanted to share the news and artifacts with as many people as possible in thanks for support and kindness.

Overall, 300+ packets mailed. Some will get lost in the mail (speaking from experience) but anyone who doesn’t receive a dossier in the post can create their own as desired, plus check out the pieces not in your packet. Of course, also assembling galleries of received invites “in situ” to wherever they end up in the world.

What follows is a compendium of evidence of various mailouts, post offices, envelopes, crafting sessions and related whatnots.

Post’d: postcard fronts, March 2018, various

While i love sending postcards, i also love the postcards themselves – each has its own artist story behind and all of that. Yet postcards spending their infinity in a shoebox without fulfilling their destiny is rather sad. As such, i compromise by snapping a quick shot of the front before dropping into the time/space portal wormhole to intended (and thrilled no doubt) recipient.

This batch was scribbled upon in March 2018, somewhere, probably Indonesia where some of the cards originate – others from elsewhere.
