Floudering Fascists driven underground by guitars

Sticker dude packed this envelope full of a range of provocative (collaborative) beautifully drawn and imagined mail art pieces from a dissatisfied band of mail artists.  Having said that, it's possible Joel has conceived and executed much in the mailing himself.  I spy that the Art Shul carving is by Ed Giecek with other helpers, see back of card. The ATC above is a design I have seen before with a sticker ammendment. Brilliant!

Agreed, we are in troubled times and to all appear to be FLOUNDERING. I love that word, floundering, BTW. I can see it.  In Dutch it is: flodderen. Apparently it comes from French and means 'to sink to the bottom', originally.  Now it's 'to flop about'.  The president's hair certainly does that and we are.

I couldn't find the author and illustrator of this wonderful (and depressing) zine… I hope it's some young person forgoing his device to draw with care to get his point of view out there, to stay on message and shed light on what is happening at this sad time. We must stay focussed! 

Or we could play the guitar and make artistamps! and then again, we might just doodle.

Thanks Joel! Another wonderful mailing.
