First IUOMA Cat Day Mail Art envelope arrives from KAT today

To my surprise, I found only Katerina Nikoltsou's mailart envelope in the POB, not any expected cartoon competition brochures at all. Happy Cat Day! Thank you very much KAT! Your nice artwork is on time indeed and with that lovely artistamp on the envelope: Turkish Delight!

Cat Day Mail Art pieces are posted just in time today

Having finished doing 10 mailart pieces for November 12 IUOMA Cat Day Mail Art exchange, this afternoon I posted them in envelopes - almost identical in design with only a little difference of small clippings added the last moment - to 9 participants + Michalis (a response) at Sirkeci Post Office.

The black cat tangram (See top above) went to the lover of them: To produce a black cat, I tried a tangram shape. I see that tangram figures are almost shadows; they are faceless, expressionless. There should be sth worth to design these pieces in a humorous way but I haven’t known yet.

The old cartoon about a great dog show with a black cat went to the cat lover dog artist of course.

There are two identical pieces of a cat pondering: WHAT IF I (This will be a complete question about a mailart project soon I hope).

There is another twin cards of a sleeping cat.

And my four identical simple drawings of a cat on an envelope.
The last 8 cards are enveloped at random: I will see if the participants publish when they receive them.

Second mail art received from Katerina Nikoltsou, Greece

This is the second mail art I received from Katerina. This time it is a greeting card for the autumn and the Republic Day in Turkey, October 29th and I was greatly honored to receive this kind of greeting: We usually do not write greeting cards for the national holidays which are celebrated in public meetings; only for the religious holidays and sometimes the New Year's Day we do if any. You're so observant KAT. Thanks a lot. I should be responding you soon I hope!

Mail Art sent: No Oil in Abruzzo, Italy

My first piece of mailart is lost in the mail maybe forever

Here is what I did write about my first creation in mail-art: http://futuristanbul.blogspot.com/2009/10/first-for-me.html .
Well, seems not arrived at the address until now, it must have been lost in the post, just as it seldom happens to mail anywhere. It might be hiding somewhere, under the postmen's desk or else.
