Call for Mail Art: Your Doctor Mail-Art-ified!

What's Your view on your Doctor?

Is he/she a good help to you and do you feel blessed by having this good health care giver? Or are you afraid, angry, bored and/or distrusting whenever you visit your doctor?

Or is he/she invisible to you as until now you didn't need medical care at all?

For this online exhibition I'm looking for mail art which shows your opinion about your doctor. A portrait, a situation, certain objects or whatever, as long as it shows your thoughts and/or feelings about him/her.

All 2D media by snail mail are welcomed, minimum postcard size (10x15 cms), maximum A4 (20x30 cms).

No jury, no fee, no return. All entries about doctors will be published here.

The very first contribution to the Your Doctor in Mail Art project comes from Lindenhof, Germany.
The images speak for themselves, although they can be interpreted in many ways! And might the position of the lighthouse on the stamp be part of some mixed feelings concerning doctors, or is it just as it is?

Vielen Dank, Lindenhof!

What has a giraffe to do with a mail art call about doctors?

In fact not that much, though as a mail artist you might be interested in the One Million Giraffes project by Ola from Norway. You can upload any giraffe at, as long as it is self made. And whenever you have an artist's block, you can find new inspiration while watching the various creations made by other people.

I post this Giraffe envelope here also to show you the irl mail address to which you can send Your (image of your) Doctor.

Looking forward to reading / seeing from you!
