Since December 1st, 2010, I’ve been running  a project called Mailart 365. The idea was to make and send 365 pieces of art in the post for a year, and after starting it, I was joined by over 100 artists, who continue the daily mailart every day to that elusive 365 conclusion (and beyond)

I didn’t manage to make it to 365 in a year, but managed to finish it just over 2 years later, having got sidetracked by my own wedding to Elena and life in general, but some of the pieces didn’t get sent out during the period, so I’m catching up now. Some of the pieces you see in the shop are finished pieces from my 365 project looking for a home.

This piece, One Head Missing and it’s flipside Tekkon was meant to go to a long-time friend in mailart, Ammy from Singapore, and it’s only now getting to go in the post. Better late than never I say.

One Head Missing was inspired by a letter I received from her in which she described an incident that happened to her in The Philippines.

120 back - Cockroach

When she arrived she picked up some Prawn tempura, and after swallowing her first bite she noticed it had half a cockroach in it. Surely everyone’s worst nightmare…

Now we’re heading out to the Far East and this is exactly the sort of thing we’re dreading.

Have you had an awful incident with food, perhaps in a foreign country? What tips do you have for two travellers to avoid getting sick? Let us know in the comments below!

An e-learning professional and physics teacher by trade, Andy discovered late in life that he rather likes art. He set up my REAL wall and mailart365 to make and send as much art in the post as possible but spends far too much on postal costs
