Ho-ho-ho Merry Christmas

Yes, I have been naughty and very slack with my Mail Art.
But I am alive and well and working hard at finishing projects that devour all of my time.
The editing has been done for my Sci-Fi trilogy and now I must complete the accompanying illustrations. Once the book is printed I plan to return to the grand world of Mail Exchange.

 If you are on social media please join me on Facebook and Instagram.
A link to my recent 3-D work -

All the best of the season to you and yours...

Herman Kamphuis, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Well, know I know at least one person reads this blog. Herman emailed me his copies of the tea-stained collages. Bravo!

Sorry about that!

While sitting comfortably in my favourite chair  drinking a mug of tea, I like to have a good in-depth read of my mail before I scan it. Unfortunately the tea tipped and: a greeting card from Herkalux, a black and white booklet from someone named Tony, a letter from my cousin Val, and all my loose notes and to-do list got dunked. I will be more careful from now on.
