Mail Art Skulls

London, England based Andy at my REAL wall told us: “Since discovering Skull-A-Day, I've been meaning to make a skull wall and today I finally got round to it! A REAL skull wall of mailart and postcards.

Nicole Gattinger a member of MAILART 365 said: “I posted a peice of Skull Mail Art today and members suggested I should submit it to your site. This piece is called ‘Soul Soaring’ it was inspired by a Death Head gravestone etching, I used the comic section of our local newspaper as the medium for this postcard.”

Postmarked C says:

People say the art of letter writing is dead, but I am glad the art of letter sending is not. Mailart is such a wonderful medium in which to work, one can produce a meaningful piece of work and allow it to be subject to the whims of the natural order of mail processing knowing very well that it may end up in a dead letter office someplace. However, that would be appropriate resting place for a piece of skull mailart. Thank you both for submitting your work to us and allowing us to be a participant with you in your creative endeavors either as a mail sender or a receiver.

PS. I am glad that the grapevine over at mailart365 is working here is another grape who we would like to say hello to , a fan from the early days, literally.

The skull wall is great Andy. I've just been tacking the mail art we receive onto a cork board -except the submissions to Dearly Departed they're in safe storage.

Thanks for posting my piece.
