last call for mail me art 2

I thought I'd post a heads up for anyone interested in participating in the Mail Me Art 2 project. As long as your mail art is postmarked by or on January 31, 2010, they will accept your submission. Above is mine (click image to see a larger view) for this month. After the success and fabulous book Mail Me Art was released based on part one of this project, they thought they'd give it one more go. As far as I know, this is THE last chance to participate, since there are no plans for a third installment. Works will be on display and for sale, with 70 percent of sales going to the artist. So, what are you waiting for? Jump HERE for more details. In the meantime, below are ten of the many space monsters to be found in the top drawing. How many more can you find?

trtl trbl

As some folks might know, I have a pet painted turtle named Gammera (named after Korea's answer to Godzilla - a giant, flying space turtle who is friend to all children). Some of you might also know that the name of my blog, and my continued fascination with turtles stemmed from having Gam as a pet. When I first started blogging several years ago, I'd post something called Thursday Turtle, which basically consisted of some wise (or not so wise) quote and a pointless photo of Gam. Anyhow, just to let you know, Gam lives and is doing quite well, spoiled by my wife who feeds him way too many freeze-dried shrimp. Above are some current pics of our fearless friend hanging out in his new tank, kindly donated to us by some friends. Maybe I'll get around to posting some mini-movie footage of Gam as well soon, for anyone who may be interested. He's very entertaining to watch!
