It's that time of year again, for our annual Monster Mania Mail Art Series. Some of our other swaps will be put on hold, so I can offer this Monster series again. It's one of my favorite series each year.

This year, we will make and send our one partner, one mail art piece for each of the Monster Mania Mail Art Series (MMMAS) swaps that you participate in.

For this swap, please make one mail art piece that features a Ghost in some way.



Ghost Tag






Halloween ATCs


Halloween ATCs

There will be 13 Halloween inspired monsters, that will lead us up to Halloween:
1- Ghost
2- Swamp Creature
3- Demon or Grim Reaper
4- Mummy
5- Skeleton
6- Bride of Frankenstein
7- Frankenstein
8- Dracula or Vampire
9. Creepy Clown
10. Monster
11. Zombie
12. Witch
13. Day of the Dead / La Catrina

You can pick and choose your favorites or sign up for all of them. If there is an Or in the subject theme, then just pick the one you want to make. This is sender's choice in style and type of mail art, so feel free to work ahead.

In this swap, make your one partner, 1 Mail Art piece (sender's choice of mail art: not limited to an ATC, Postcard, Inkbox Card, Mini Zine-Original not photocopied, Decorated Envelope with a tuck in, 2 ATC coins, Tag, Altered File Folder, etc) that highlights the Monster for that swap.

Any art medium is acceptable, this means no stickers please. Sticky embellishments are okay. Postcards can be any size or shape, and are preferred to be mailed Naked, however you may choose to mail in an envelope. I know weather, covid concerns, and unpredictable mail service has some people wanting to mail in an envelope. If you have a preference, please list it on your profile. Things mailed in an envelope should be mailed in some sort of decorated envelope. ATC's are standard 2.5 x 3.5 inches, and can be oriented in either direction. Please include your artist info on your work.

Please include your name and the name of the swap somewhere, so that you can get rated.

Be sure to rate your partner when you get your mail art item.

Happy Swapping!

Also curious for next year, if you all would prefer doing 2 Monsters at a time, and not starting the series as early in the year...or doing it as is, at one monster at a time and starting around now?

I like this time of year. Do you mean 2 partners, or say a ghost & a wearwolf to one partner? I like 2 partners!

So excited for this swap and I think it's great to start at this time of the year!!!

Just curious is there a type of mail art piece that is is most popular?

wolfeagle 08/11/2022 #

I was thinking 2 monsters at a time...like Frank and Bride of Frank.....since you can send 2 usually for the same cost as one, and then instead of over 13 weeks, it would be 6 or 7.

Thank you.

I think ATC's and postcards are still most popular.
