Daniel Zender sent Meathaus two new group zines that he put together and a note that says:
Here are some new zines I made called Hydrochloric. Enjoy!!
Hey thanks for these drawing zines, Daniel. You are really good at initiating new zine projects. There are some artists in here that are new to me and this is satisfying to my art-hungry eyeballs. Check out more about these zines at the above links and also check out these previous letters from Daniel here and here.
Here’s a link bonanza to all of the contributing artists to these zines:
John Malta / Dan Blackman / Daniel Fishel / Gracia Lam / Justin Gabbard / Keith Negley / Cun Shi / Edel Rodriguez / Doug Salati / Laura Berglund / Hye Jin Chung / Sue Jean Ko / Pete Cuba / Natalya Balnova / Dadu Shin / Hanna Barczyk / Jensine Eckwall / Shannon Freshwater / Luisa Possas / Javier Jaen Benavides / Tim Enthoven
Psst… hey kid. Yeah, you with the 22 bucks. I got a hot tip for yous. Even though we don’t have final cover art selected for the book yet, the Adventure Time: The Art of Ooo book that I wrote and designed is listed on amazon.com and they are pre-selling it at 36% off for some crazy reason. So if you pre-order that massive 352 page book now, you get it for only $22 something, plus tax and shipping. Cover price is a reasonable $35. You’ll be hearing and seeing a lot more about it from me through the spring and summer before it publishes in the fall, but yeah. Hot tip.
Featured image above is a page from the just aired “Lemonhope: Part 2″ episode, storyboarded by Tom Herpich and Steve Wolfhard. OK well that storyboard is not in the book. But there is 352 pages of other kick-butt art in the book.
I was wondering who painted those swell greasy hobos on Jethro Tull’s Aqualung (1971) album so I went and took a look on the Internet. It was Burton Silverman, check out his drawings and paintings on his website.
Meathaus favorite YouTuber Wendyvanity has changed her username to madcatlady but is still cranking out the music video hits like these kind of gross-awesome meat themed videos. I hope she hasn’t erased all her old classic hits, haven’t dug deep yet. No wait I think they are still there and she is still Wendyvanity. I don’t know what is going on, obviously. But we have posted about her before here and here and here and you can see some nice screen grabs of her videos on those posts.
Come out and see Soxx and her arts and crafts and refreshments at Little Berlin Gallery. Tonight, Friday, March 7, 2430 Coral Street, Philadelphia 19125 from 7-10pm. There will also be some popcorn all over the place and tomatoes getting launched by a machine, I think.
What is happening to my Meathaus you might ask. Well not too much just getting a little design refresh building off the default WordPress themes that can do way more than I can figure out how to do. Anyway they’ll also regularly get updated and become more powerful and secure whereas my old tweaked themes just got older and disintegrated slowly as I chopped them up and ruined them in fits of meat-destruction. Wow, why not buy a copy of the full color Meathaus SOS book to celebrate. Also look at this Thomas Herpich artwork that wasn’t in the SOS book. Perhaps it was an alternate cover option? Amazing.
wOO check it out Freak Scene East coming up at Space 1026, this poster is by Lale Westvind and the featured image poster detail above is by Josh Bayer.
Dig into Patrick Crotty’s stash of loosely doodled dudes and cities. Also he’s part of the PEOW! studio and printing press in Stockholm, Sweden.
Some mind-tickling Monday reading. Liam’s writing up at PANK. Get into it.
