COVID Card #262

Joe Cox is another post office muralist about whom the web knows little. From what I can tell, his work tends to have a strong graphic design element. Many of his industrial-scapes would seem abstract if they weren’t. Weird, eh? A little sketchy. Not surprisingly, his work did evolve (I’m guessing) to the abstract. Personally, I love his painting titled Yellow Wall.

Cox made at least one post office mural: Clearing the Right of Way (Garrett, Indiana).

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.
