It’s been a long week and just because its the weekend that doesn’t mean I stop working, if anything it gets even busier as we approach Monday. I’ve been doing a lot of work on optimising Mail Me Art’s online presences and it seems to be going to plan. Can you believe it’s been six years since I started the project!? Where’s the interrobang when you need it.
Mail Me Art 3 is slowly ramping up, I’ll be doing a post on the LCS soon with a final call for… announcement. Then it will be time to send the invites out. This time round MMA is going to be bigger and better than ever before with lots of amazing artists already involved. I can’t waiting to start receiving the mail art and posting about it. I best dust of the camera and give the scanner a clean. Leave a comment if you have any questions about the project at the moment or visit Mail Me Art.
How cool are these little monsters, I’ve got several thousand of them! Everything is now going to have a little LCS sticker stuck on it. Laptops, tins, people, dogs, snails! Fun, fun, fun! Maybe not the snails, that might be a bit mean as they can’t run away.
A new LCS interview with the prolific Rod Hunt.
It’s all systems go at the LCS at the moment. We’re just about to put up a new LCS interview, can you believe it’s been several years since we last did one. We’re off in an hour to have a chat (brunch) about a venue for a private Mail Me Art show next year. Illosaurus is getting fat and illopromo is back! There is loads more to tell you and loads more coming soon, but coffee is required so I’ll leave it at that for now! :)
It’s been a fun few day! Last week I walked and tubed across London checking out as many cool galleries as I could see, searching for a central location for MMA3. On the same day I had a lovely lunch and chat with the talent Rod Hunt. Then following on from that, over the weekend me and Jane join a fantastic bunch of illustrators for another lunch in Stamford, organised by Mr. Beach. Busy, busy, busy. I’m working on a couple new LCS interviews and I’ve got a finished one from Rod to go up very soon! Can you believe it’s been several years since I last did a LCS interview???
Started putting the feelers out to find out who’s interested in Mail Me Art 3. Hopefully they’ll be lots of interest! I’ll also be sending a few special invites out soon. To request an invite… http://www.mailmeart.com/going-postal/submit-mail-art/
I’ve almost finished updating the Mail Me Art site. I just need to find out if Inkymole (Factory Road) and Animal Aid want to get involved, plus I need to announce the call for submissions on the LCS. Should be lots of fun!
The Little Chimp has just done his part for Movember and is now sporting a nifty little mo in support. Donate to Movember! He’s a happy little chappy now and it’s all for a good cause.
More information about Movember…
Monday is the day for thinking about the future and future planning! I’m going have a long meeting over a hot coffee and maybe a biscuit in the morning with Jane (hai Manager & LCS editor). We have a lot to talk about, if I’m going to push the LCS in the direct I want it to go in. Should be fun!
