Leander Capuozzo sent Meathaus a copy of his full color art zine SWSEVEN which is one tight little package of doodley collages and drawings from a handful of artists and a note that reads:
Here is a strange little book I made with some very cool artists! I hope you enjoy it! (picture of a space cat) –Leander Capuozzo”
Thanks Leander this book looks and feels good, I like to hold it and look at it. This is like a coffee table art book of art zines, which I would put on a coffee table if I had that. Check out the contributing artists and the fun to play with website header over on SWSEVEN dot com.
Hey check it out Sciencepainted sent another envelope of stuff to Meathaus. Here is the last one. Just as long as no one gets hurt and everyone’s having a good time I’m pretty much down with some weird stuff in an envelope.
Anyway as you can see this post and the next three or five letters have been posted by Lee. Lee is competently hanging around both my UArts class and studio this semester as an official school intern so one of the things he has helped with is posting these mothers during my time of deep Meathaus neglect due to other work. Lee is an illustration student at UArts and you can dig through his web work here.
Check out Jun Cen’s art over here and blog.
Check it out Horfée has got a new website for art projects. Plus there is the Tumblr.
Someone asked for a list of who has been in Meathaus comics so here is a photo of all the table of contents/names in each issue. That’s issues one through nine, top to bottom. We really didn’t give a crap about editing, punctuation, or spelling your name right. Or I should say we didn’t give enough craps to get any of that right.
Eric B. Rivera dropped us a note to check out his new artwork that he completed, PNG Winter Triptych. I’ll let the description on his blog fill you in on context:
I finished three new auto surrealism watercolor pieces, which are really painstaking to make and tend to induce slight delirium, headaches, and occasionally migraines in the artist through conception. Now I will pack these paintings up and send them to a collector living in the hills of Los Angeles, CA. I wish I lived in LA right now, as Chicago is deep chilled by our second “polar vortex” in as many weeks. Instead, I stay indoors drawing, grow pale and soft, sleep restlessly. I’ve been having really frightening nightmares, often set in my childhood home, often involving rat infestations. Of course I was born in the Year of the Rat in the Chinese zodiac. What could it mean, as the water levels rise around the globe, secret wars rage on between the Reptilians and the Holograms, human men fed to the deluge like common fodder, the morlocks kept brainwashed through their Coke and Pepsi, brains whirring on nitrogen haze, balls full, eyes glazed from digital vapor.
Also if you poke around his website you can enjoy his comics about gross biker dudes kicking each other’s asses with throwing stars and truckers drugging and peeing on people.

Good news, season two of Doug’s Pound House has begun.
Tom Meddings sent all this neat stuff from Thailand, including some stickers and Eye to Eye and a letter that reads:
“Dear Meathaus, Here is a copy of my latest book for you! Eye to Eye my first venture into offset with a hand screen printed slipcover. Also some stickers that I have been wanting to print for ages but just found somewhere with a reasonable enough [something] for the die-cutting! Hope you enjoy! Tom XX Facebook/unedibletom“
Oh wow everyone should get into this Eye to Eye book about this hunter lady who is out and she wants to shoot some deer, but then a fly and a bunch of deer basically become a bunch of naked ladies everywhere crawling all over her rifle and eyeballs and she definitely has some second thoughts before making a decision about what to do. And these stickers are very handsome and expertly die-cut indeed. Get in touch with Tom here or here to learn more about everything and get your hamfists on these materials. See Tom’s previous letter here.
Jamie Hibdon sent Meathaus a package with Hot Pursuit, Star Seed, some prints and a little note that reads:
“Meat Casa, Please receive these comics with joy. I traded Chris for a tijuana-bible style smutty sci-fi comic at Locust last year. Here is a modified version of that, plus an ashcan for my new story, Star Seed, both of which debuted at Locust this year. Hope you like, keep up the good work! –Jams”
I’m going to have to dig through my pile to look for this smut. Anyway, thanks for sending over these comics Jamie. Hot Pursuit is described on the inside back cover as being completed mostly at a 24-hour comic making session hosted at a comic book store in which Jamie acted creepy in a dark corner, cloistering himself while drawing a sci-fi sex comic. Probably for the best. Star Seed has a cool black and white and purple cover and is about these lady space-rabbits that have to hatch their space eggs in a very specific, epic, way in accordance with ancient tradition. But some kind of nasty thing screwed their junk up and now this one is left to tell her story to this bearded dude who looks confused. Lots of ink flying all over the place in here. See more from Jamie on his Tumblr and blog. Oh and see Jamie’s previous letter here.
