Letter to Meathaus: Ron Hotz

Ron Hotz sent Meathaus a hybrid sketch/drawing and comics zine and a letter from Toronto:

“I hope you like this book. Yup, That’s about all I got to say. Love, Ron Hotz”

And then a second copy and another letter after we took too long to post the first:

“Where the hell is out Meathaus submission?! Love you guys, Ron”

Thanks Ron! I’ve got your Meathaus submission right here. Check it out: the book that Ron produced is sort of a scrap book of weird medical office paraphernalia, receipts, sticky notes and cork board photos with a narrative through line of Ron’s teenaged characters with cool hair who are trying to get home. I’m thinking these are the same characters in Ron’s online comics Best Day Evr! that he would also like to share with you, here. Also above are a few images Ron included in an initial email when I told him to send a letter in the real mail as sure-fire way to get on the Meathaus which is also why Ron had certain expectations of us posting said-submission. Little did Ron know, it can take an ass-long time to get around to. But here we are today, alive in this moment, sharing this digi-connection. Rejoice, internet. Life without art would be a cruel slog through a brutal meat-scape of unending horror.

Letter to Meathaus

Check it out, Andrew McKay sent Meathaus a package with PEONY STUDIES and a letter that says:

“Hello again Meathaus,
Please see enclosed for your review a copy of the catalogue produced for my most recent body of work, PEONY STUDIES.
With thanks,
A. McKay”

Well thank you A., let’s take a look at this book. Andrew also goes by Andy Borehol which it says right on the cover, and the work includes ten collaborating artists in the project as well from Andrew’s locality of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. As is often the case, you’re going to do better using the native image browsing system that you are currently using to eyeball these peonies over on Andrew’s website rather than trying to see some detail in the scanned thumbnails of the catalog above. As of this writing, the PEONY STUDIES are right on the front page of the website so get over there and check ’em out. Not only does Andrew’s letter say “Hello again” but I had the sense that we have had a letter or links from Andrew before–but no combination of searches on this website bring up any previous articles or letters to link to. It is a strange universe, indeed.
