You did a great job with the artwork (as always)! By the way, I mail something to you this week. Hope you get it soon.
Thank you very much Per-Arne! I am very happy to see you here! I will enjoy your mail, as always.
Rafael, your poster of Hal and the video clip are great. They really convey Hal’s wonderful sense of humor and playful spirit. I’m glad that you posted one of his envelopes. They are beautiful, thoughtful works of art to be treasured.
Thank you very much for your words! I completely agree with you. Hal's envelopes are works of art, I always love them
Nice work Rafael! What I wonder(I can't make it out), are those all real American stamps or are the 'fake-ones'?
Yes Frank, those are all real American postage stamps! You will find many stamps affixed to the packages that I have mailed to your Belgian address.
Bonjour Frank! The US postal service makes very cool stamps!
I wish, that I could hold all my little treasures in my hands already!
I don't even know of Belgium still makes stamps. I guess, I will find out soon enough!
I am sure of it!
I was THRILLED with Rafael’s art that accompanied my HalZine essays!
And I really enjoyed reading your essays!
I'm not a big mail-art guy--mail art for me was primarily a way to promote Walls Of Genius back in the day... that said... I keep all the mail art that Hal sends. There's no way I could discard it. A lot of thought goes into his works and as Leslie indicates, I regard them as little treasures. Some others have sent me mail-art and I feel guilty when I don't respond, but not sufficiently guilty to reciprocate. So for any of you that sent me something, something in which you put a lot of thought, and didn't hear back from me, I hope you'll accept my retroactive (and maybe future) apologies.
The most important thing is freedom, in any case. I sometimes can not answer everything I want, since sometimes I could surf on a wave of correspondence, but yes, I love Mail Art is itself

I like to create collages and rubber stamp art.emailLa Laguna (Tenerife)Canary Islands, Spain
