COVID Card #193

November 14, 2020 | 0 comments

I wish no offense to the hundreds of post office muralists who make me go, “meh.” Were they here to judge my “art,” they might do worse than “go meh.” It is highly likely a result of my research being limited, largely, to the web, and the fact that some of these people are not at all well-represented on the web, rather than a true reflection of each artist’s entire body of work.

Frank Mechau’s (if you click the link, be sure to visit the gallery page) work is pretty easy to find online. Modernist West has a page dedicated to Mechau. On it, you can see a list of his major exhibits, as well as a list of museums that hold some of his work.

It was not difficult to be inspired by Mechau, in fact, I could probably churn out a few cards inspired by his work. But I won’t.

Cards 1-100

The United States Postal Service has been hit hard by the pandemic. Controlling elements of the Federal Government (the president and Republican Senate) do not want to provide aid to the service. So, it’s up to us. It may seem insignificant, but if we all sent just a few letters a week, we could help ensure that our daily, free mail delivery service continues. For the past (see the card number above) days, I have drawn a card each day and mailed it to someone the next day (none are sent on Sundays; two are sent on Mondays). Please consider mailing cards and letters while we still can for 55 cents (first class letter postage). If the USPS fails, you could find it costs $8 or more to send a letter. And that’s just one of the ways we will all lose if the USPS shuts down.
