Calendar cut up fields of colour

One of the things that I admire about Tofu is the way he refuses to get overwhelmed with his prolific output. This card, his recycled calendar from 201,  is number 20/21.  I imagine that he was moving last year's calendar around his studio in the course of early January and on one occasion he seized on the idea to use it as mail art, cleared the decks, cut and glued and got them out and in the mail before the end of the month!  What a feat!

The result has a recognizeably vintage feel.  I love it's haptic quality and the tessolations of colour. 
I will try to emmulate Tofu and use all the stuff I move around my studio to make mail art in the future!
