THE COLONY OF DOGOLAND

Dogoland is a colony established by the entrepeneur, Smorkrog Bilgo, who operated a freight enterprise in the jungles of West Merreminde.

Bilgo also had a jungle touring business, his popular 'Swamp Tours.' He engaged in trade frequently with the neighboring nation state of Bungowa, an independent kingdom. LOL

NOTES ON THE TRANSITION FROM CYBER ART MAIL TO PHYSICAL STAMP COVERS


These covers are the last of my cyber art mail, or covers that are entirely digital art. Subsequently in 2016, I began to create physical stamp covers, often printed on parchment paper, folded into envelopes. 

The cancellations continued to be digital on my physical covers. But they were applied by laser printer to physical stamps. None of these recent cancellations were transferred to the rubber stamp medium, as is common with many mail artists.

My next post of Xawar covers will be of my early experiments with physical fantasy stamp covers.
