2015 Little Chimp Award Winner Annouced

LCAWe’ve very happy to announce Mark Hammermeister is the winner of the 2015 Little Chimp Award! It was a very close call and Violet and Brian were just pipped to the post. All of the artists who were shortlisted for the award actually deserved to win, which is why they’ll all be getting Chimp Coins. But in the words of Connor MacLeod “There can be only one” and the 2015 award goes to Mark Hammermeister. Continue Reading →

Awards, secrets & a showcase of talent

exit_sartor

It’s been a busy couple weeks! I announced the shortlist for The Little Chimp Award and released our first zine, Secret Self Vol. 1. I also published an interview with Discworld artist Paul Kidby and started work on the Showcase 100 book in preparation for the April exhibition. All in all I should be completely exhausted and should probably take a break, but I’m not done yet. For the last 12 months I’ve also been working on a new clothing brand which I will hopefully be ready to launch and talk about (very) soon, it’s all very exciting. Oh, and Mail Me Art is still going strong!

We’re slowly working our way towards offering a Little Chimp award to a deserving recipient. This is the award! Isn’t he cool. There still lots of work to do and we need to select someone to win it, but in the meantime we wanted to share this nifty photo of him with you. The 3D modelling was done by the talented Metin Seven and it was printed by Shapeways.

Mail Me Art 4 Deadline! Can you keep a secret?

It’s been a while since we moved the LCS blog from Apefluff to the main site and it’s been a while since our last blog post. A lot has happened and there’s a lot to talk about!

1911Mail Me Art 4 (Open All Hours) has been going for 17 months now. We launched MMA4 along with the current book at the London exhibition for Mail Me Art 3 (Short & Sweet) in July 2013. During that period the most asked question has been when is the deadline. Well… we’re happy to announce the deadline is 28th August 2015. For MMA4, the mail art isn’t being delivered directly to us, it’s being picked up in batches and so far we’ve collected 3 batches of brilliant mail art. I would like to show off a few of the highlights, but before that I want to mention that if you want to take part in MMA4 all you need is a copy of the MMA3 book and to receive a copy all you need to do is CLICK HERE. The Mail Me Art: Short & Sweet (MMA3) book is published and distributed by The Little Chimp Society, you can get it from Amazon, but it’ll cost you an arm and a leg. It’s cheaper to get it directly from us, and where do you think Amazon gets them from anyway? Continue Reading →
