Mail art by Moan Lisa (North Liberty, Iowa, USA)
I am pleased to share the contents of an envelope recently received from the ever-prolific, ever-provocative, ever-evolving Moan Lisa.

Accordingly, Moan Lisa uses another Andy Warhol-style appropriation/homage/quotation, assuming the stamps were actually made by Moan Lisa. More specifically, the stamps conjure an Andy Warhol meets William S. Burroughs vibe. Here is a close in on one of the stamps:
Moan Lisa also included a print:
