Almost three months ago already, on the 1st of May, I received a wonderful Smurf envelope, followed by a Dragon envelope on the 3rd of May.
I think FinnBadger knows well how to cause a broad smile on my face. Together with Platypus and Echidna, and Birds, both Smurfs and Dragons make my day when they arrive via mail art at my place.
I was even more amazed when I saw the Smurf stamp. First I thought it an artistamp, but looking close it turns out to be a real (read: officially issued) stamp, issued by the United Nations Postal Administration.
The Dragon is a favourite of mine, too, having been born in the Year of the Dragon.
This one pictured is a funny one, friendly as almost all dragons are, funny because she or he's fond of tacos. Surprisingly not liking the spicy salsa...
Great matching stamps, too, which make me remember the months I spent in Central America, some decades ago (tamales.. qué sabrosos!)
Inside one of the envelopes this great collage. I happened to have seen and heard the talented Gorilla in the week preceding receiving this collage!
Also this wonderful collage arrived. Amazing how two faces can make one new face.

FinnBadger added some leaflets of the artists Dino Nemec and Patrick Wayner, showing more animals:
Check Dino Nemec's website for more beautiful animal art; more information about Patrick Wayner and his art you can find here and here.
Thank you very much, FinnBadger!
