Kiyotei's Top Choice!

We announce our humble existence on this infractuous planet as newness to the myriad readers in the rubrique 'ongoing calls'. We still cherish our appetence for apothegmatic and creative sendings by mail, without hindrance by theme (our only theme being 'reality', naturally), format, or technique.

Considering creative interchange as the ancient gist of mail-art, we'll respond to anyone by sending some original drawings within one month. In a wonderous envelope.

This call is for artist trading cards of any theme. The only regulation is the size - 2 1/2" X 3 1/2" (64mm x 89mm). The art side of the card can be any subject and any medium. The back of the card is optional, but I would like to see the title along with your name and date. I am asking that only 1 or 2 cards be sent at a time. I will send the same amount of my creations back to the person.

There is currently no deadline for this call. After you receive ATCs back from me, feel free to create another ATC or two and send them to me. I would like to swap a lot of ATCs, but I don't want to get overloaded, so that is why I am setting the limit at two.

All ATCs received and sent out for this call will be posted at

In order for me to send ATCs back to you, please include your mailing address on a seperate piece of paper inside the envelope the first time you send the ATCs. If you would like to decorate the envelope or send other forms of mail art also, I will post that those pieces at my other blog -

Will you, won't you, will you, won't you, will you join the dance?'"

Mars Project     The M.A.R.S. Project

The M.A.R.S. Project (Mobile Arts Road Show) launches this July. Primary exhibition sites will be in south-west Washington and Oregon along the Interstate 5 corridor and down the Washington and Oregon coast (including several college campuses, beaches, and freeway rest areas.) This is an open call and entries will be added to the exhibit as they arrive (although the exhibition might have to go “indoors” when the winter weather sets in, usually around September in this part of the U.S.)

There are no theme restrictions. If you want to create a “M.A.R.S. Project” logo or space / Martian / rocket ship / alien collage or cartoon that would be great, but it is not a requirement for inclusion in the exhibition. Because this is an outdoor project I want to be able to fit all of the exhibits into sheet protectors, so I’m asking for all entries to be 8 ½ by 11 inches or smaller, but other than this restriction any format will be accepted: Collages, cartoons, ATCs, postcards, envelope art, photography, anything, even 3D, as long as it fits in a sheet protector. Sequential works broken up over several 8 ½ by 11 “panels” (diptych, triptych, or longer) are also encouraged.

All entries become the property of the exhibit and will be scanned, archived, and posted on the M.A.R.S. Project site (along with any information about when and where the road show will be stopping next.) If you want production credits, email or snail mail addresses, or any other information posted (or not posted) along with your artwork (either at the live exhibit or on the site) don’t forget to include this with your entry.

Send entries to:
