Received from Romania, from Alex Vlasiu, this fine drawing.
These pictures of x-rays, they remind me of the radiologist, an unseen and almost unknown doctor.
Thank you very much, mulțumesc mult Alex!

Very happy to receive the third contribution by Fulgor C. Silvi from Italy.
With two announcements of two congresses: on the stamp below the surgeons' congress which took place last week, and above an implicit invitation to join the (mail art!) Decentralized Networker Congress 2012 which will take place from 2nd to 4th November.
Grazie mille, Fulgor!

Great stamped Doctor's collage, made and sent by Lubomyr Tymkiv from Ukraine.
Accompanied by this special Fluxus rubber stamp print and some piece to add-to-and-return for the Stamps Heart mail art project.
Thank you very much, Lubomyr!

Received from "E" from Utopia / France, these rubber stamped doctor's portraits (or patient's portraits?).
Below: I was amazed to see that the French Post managed to find the right place to add their own stamp, between the nice large amount of mail art stamps.
Merci beaucoup, "E"!

The best thing to do - to become/stay healthy - is to keep the doctor away.
Eva sent this collage of signs of - what we at home call - 'vitamine bombs' aka 'sport-candies'. And since I received this mail art, I am convinced that Fruits are Doctors, too.
Also the advice on the postage stamps ('don't contaminate/pollute') to provide us with clean air, earth and water, of course is an important one.
Moltse gràcies, Eva!
By the way, did you know that there are many collectors of fruit stickers? See for instance here, here, and a large collection here. And besides of using to make mail art, fruit stickers also can help making pointillistic paintings. Furthermore, the numbers on the stickers are solvable codes.
(Meanwhile fruitstickers are threatened with extinction, er, dissolving.)

Not really intended for this Your Doctor in Mail Art project, I guess, but as a reply to my Trees (which are good for health, too!). However the true words above made me choose to publish this nice mail art from Guido Vermeulen here.
It's not 'your doctor in mail art', but rather 'your doctor is mail art'!
'Xerographics', edition 46/50
Check the 2012 mail art project of Guido:
- REBEL REBEL, movements of contestation
Also you can contribute to his ongoing projects:
- TREES, documented on IUOMA
- KIEKJESDIEF, photos to document our own existenZ,
- LAMUSAR, art inspired by music and literature.
By the way: the painted envelope below is named 'Wild is the Wind', a tribute to Nina Simone.
Hartelijk dank, Guido!

Although at first sight this card not really seems to be mail art, the original backside has been altered*), the subject is 'doctor' and it has been sent by post. So definitely accepted for this YDiMA mail art blog!
'La consulta del Dr.' (the Doctor's consulting room) is a good example for health professionals' practice: add favourite music to the waiting/consultation-room and hospital wards, and patients' health might improve even faster.
(Though lack of nocturnal sleep will undo the health effect, then...)
*) altered first by Eva by putting some white paper and writings on it, then by me because of privacy reasons :-) Hope you won't mind, Eva!)
Moltes gràcies, Eva!
