Beautiful Weekend in the Desert

After a week of rain, the desert is blooming again. Took some great photos of the Borrego Springs/Ocotillo Wells area and some rare wildlife shots on the way home on SR-22.

These shots are stills captured from a video I shot of some Bighorn sheep feeding on the side of the mountain near Culp Canyon. The video is really jerky and zapruder-esk in quality but you can still see the animals in some of the frames.

You can see some more shots of wildflowers and coyote on my photoblog.

Cult Figure 2005

My Madge

Every year since 1997, Ken Miller has found a cult figure to manipulate. This year it is the lovely Madge. See all the contributions and read more about this ongoing project at Cult Figures on Ken's Shouting at the Postman web site. Better yet, send in a manipulation yourself. Be sure to wander around his site while you are there because there are some truly righteous gems to be found. You can also read my flashlight interview of Ken.

Pixel Pairings

Lately I've been enjoying Mick Boyle's collaborative art in a few online blogs including an especially delightful entry in the the 5 Million Copies Project that he did in collaboration with Elizabeth Zo. Mick has his own blog with mail art and digital works and he sent me a few images to play with this morning.
Here are the results:

Mail Art T-Shirt

Claudio Romero of Italy sent me a mailart call in postcard format a while ago. Apparently he sent quite a few . . .

If you want to see the 130+ contributions, check out his web site photo album.

He does not have a deadline for the call (it is ongoing) so email him if you want to contribute and ask for a mailart t-shirt postcard of your very own.

For all other info mail to:
Claudio Romeo / V.le Kennedy 144 / 20050 Villa Raverio (Mi) / ITALY.

Hair of the Dog

Just got a great furry postcard from Jean Kusina of Freemont, Ohio. She always sends the coolest stuff. I haven't heard from her in a while, so it was especially nice to get this postcard. In addition to her mailart projects, she is an excellent writer / poet and a sculptor too.

One of the wackiest things that I ever received at the post office was a collaged doggy dish from Jean.
