Mail art by Joel S. Cohen aka The Sticker Dude (New York, New York, USA)

Today we are again thrilled to be able to share with you – our dearest and ever-faithful Tenderfoots – absolutely FAB work by yet another Eternal Network luminary: Joel S. Cohen aka The Sticker Dude. The Sticker Dude is another case of a mail artist so well known that he requires no introduction to most of you who frequent our humble but currently sparkling blog. If, perchance, you would like to know more about Joel Cohen, much information is available online:

Many Tenderfoots have deduced that we receive mail from current friends as well as old friends and acquaintances encountered somewhere back along the Long and Dusty Trail. Sometimes we have been known to apply pressure or even twist and arm or two to obtain work for you.

We only know of The Sticker Dude and are, of course, admirers. So he holds a kind of enigmatic, removed legendary status in our minds. Additionally, stamps and stickers are a huge segment of the mail art world and very, very popular. We display stamps and make them but do not hold a candle, as they say, to masters like Joel Cohen, Mike Dickau (California, USA) and Ruud Janssen (Netherlands), just to name a few examples from that world.

The Sticker Dude was extraordinarily generous sending us so many wonderful stamps and stickers. Hopefully, you are able to click and enlarge the scans because his work is worthy of your scrutiny and consideration.

The total immersion in stamps and stickers is a unique aesthetic experience indeed, including the envelope:
