Postcard to Meathaus: Artem Filatov

Check it out: Artem Filatov sent Meathaus this postcard called “In toad’s hands” with a note on the back:

“Hi Meathaus!
Greetings from Russia! This is my hand-pulled silkscreen postcard. I send them in the end of each year.
AR”

Thanks Artem! Meathaus loves to get postcards from far-away places. It sparks the imagination, and they usually come with curious postage stamps. Love the toad and the decorative AR seal which stands for Anvil Rosenkreuz, which is where you can see more work from Artem as well as on Instagram.

Letter to Meathaus: Christoph Mueller

Look at this: Meathaus SOS contributor Christoph Mueller sent Meathaus his solo comic book anthology The Nincompoop No. 1 and an envelope drawing that reads:

“Hey there Meathaüs!
Hope you’ll dig my little D.I.Y. comic book–
Best wishes,
C.M. 2016”

Outstanding, Christoph. What a fine production, and self-published, too! You know we at Meathaus can dig that. In terms of digging, The Nincompoop makes me feel like I’ve just dug it out of the stacks of NYC’s comics shops seventeen years ago when I was scoring ’90s era Eightballs and Dirty Plottes and picking up the latest Jimmy Corrigans. You’ll want to find more about this ish over on Mueller’s Journal and check out all the other fine drawing and design work while you are there.

Letter to Meathaus: John Carvajal

Check it out, a while ago John Carvajal sent Meathaus this package with Scraps, two issues of Anterran and a letter that reads:

“Hey Meathaus!
Hope you enjoy these comics! Anterran is a collaboration with my friend Simon [Mesnard], theblackcube.fr. Scraps is a collection of short stories I’ve done over the last few years.
Thanks!
–John

Super, John, thanks for sharing these books with Meathaus. Take a look at more work and drawings with this watercolor wash technique John uses on John’s website, jacarvajal.com, his Tumblr, Instagram and the aforementioned theblackcube.fr,

Meathaus Feels the Love

A personal note from Chris:

I’m thankful for Meathaus: The concept, the comics, the informal group of artists. I’m grateful for these siblings-in-Meat‘s friendship and guidance. These people have changed my life forever. I’m thankful for all the contributors to our anthology comics and sketchbooks over the years, and the people who bought them and shared them. I’m super psyched about all the artists whose work gets shared here. I’m feeling the love from all the people who take the time to write a letter to Meathaus and send their latest work to share with us and with our little slice of the global audience. We hold on to this tactile exchange of media and ideas. This pile of Letters to Meathaus (above) gets me misty eyed.

Always keep making stuff! Keep your course steady toward progress! Support your neighbors and community! Never regress. RESIST.

Also, by the way, finally killed the ad to the right. Who cares, it was tacky and never paid for the server bills anyway. Now it is straight-up art the way it should be, and everything displays a lot nicer and wider.

Also, also, I doubled the amount of featured article thumbnails that appear on the top of the front page (above). It is the best way to see a random selection of past articles and go catch up with the artists!
