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.

Guido Vermeulen

'Life is fun despite illness and death'

Guido Vermeulen sent a large (Friour approved!) envelope-with-contents which indeed was puzzling to me. Part of his mail art fits in both the Weird Animal project and this Your Doctor in Mail Art project. So, what to choose?
At least the picture above belongs here, with the history of disease pictured as a touching reality. And fortunately on the back side of this piece of mail art Guido wrote the hopeful message that life is fun, despite the negative things life also brings to us.

The more 'Weird Animal' painting you can find on But this one - which is part of the painting - suits here, by the accompanying poem: 'The animals of our dreams don't need doctors'. (Click on the picture to enlarge, and in case you don't read Dutch, use this - already filled out - online translator)

Thank you, hartelijk dank, Guido!

Please note Guido's Network site: and his personal blog:

And send mail art in answer to his interesting call for entries (isn't music curing, too?!?):
