    That mask is awesome! Looks like the eyes have it 💛

    Love collage (I mean, I REALLY love it and try to incorporate it into my writing) and love haiku! So this incredible mask was made with junk mail? What a perfectly cool thing to do with that daily stuff! Great poem, great mask. 🙂

      Check out Claudia, she does this all the time. All those little annoying postcards you get in your mail and on your front step? Art in disguise! (and free!)

      • cdog5 says :

        Will definitely check her out — and what a terrific idea re: junk mail. I say, “Bring it on, junk-mailers!” 🙂

    You and Claudia are really an inspiration for this kind of art. It had never occurred to me that things so powerful could be produced from all those irritating little cards and inserts!

    • Claudia McGill says :

      And there is an unending abundance of it, so many people decry it, but for me – I feel nothing but excitement about so much raw material. Certainly don’t know what I’d do without it.!!!

      • memadtwo says :

        and just wait until the political season really gets moving…

      • Claudia McGill says :

        We just had a local election and you are so right – the number skyrocketed. Good for me, that was for sure, but I didn’t read any of them, so the candidates did not quite get the effect they were seeking???

      • memadtwo says :

        They are all just telling you how wonderful they are anyway. Many of the elections around here are uncontested, and we still get heaps of self-congratulatory missives. I’d like to find a way to incorporate their faces or words somehow…

    • memadtwo says :

      Got to neutralize those little irritations. If only the senders knew how their messages are being transformed!

  4. memadtwo says :

    It has a menacing quality and fits with the fear and sadness lurking all around. I don’t know if you intended it that way. Sure hope all the eyes are those of our friends and not our enemies. It’s a great composition and the colors are wonderful–different.

  5. Sharon Mann says :

    A very appropriate way way to use junk mail! Michael mention Claudia, I was thinking of her, too. Your collages always have thought provoking impact. Thanks for posting.

  6. Claudia McGill says :

    Thanks for the mention, I am very flattered to be in the company of this Mask – . The eyes, I can’t say enough how they affect how I see the piece (no pun intended) – it’s like the Mask is unmasked, revealing itself through the “window of the soul” that eyes are proverbially referred to. Lots to think about here.
    And it just goes to show you that junk mail is GOOD when it finds its real place, right?

  7. Claudia McGill says :

    I also love the line: Mega you crazy.

  8. Teresa Robeson says :

    That mask is amazing! And the collage poem is simply inspired!

  9. Killing Jar Studio says :

    That is one powerful mask collage! Inspiring!
