Check it out, Meathaus got a second package of zines and a letter from George Wylesol, which reads:
“Yo McD/Meathaus people–
How are you? I am in grad skool now at MICA and thought you’d be interested in some zines + stuff I made in the past year or so. Hope all is well on your end.
Sweet, thanks George. George was in one of my illustration classes once, I told the brief story on the last letter we got. George writes short pieces, illustrates them and packages/publishes them into self-contained art zines. I think it’s the greatest way to keep moving and making work so I’m pleased again to see George still in action. How many art school people do you know who just kind of pooped-out after the structure of school was over? I bet a lot. Again (and this is fitting since a whole crop of you are probably about to graduate in a few weeks), you’ve got to band together and create groups, structures and projects to force and motivate yourself to keep creating. What else are you gonna do? Calcify and die? Well yeah, but I mean before then. Back to George. Thanks George! See more of his work like these new pieces I found to be intriguing on his Tumblr, below, and his website.
Daniel Zender sent Meathaus a package with More Mono, Giving In, some postcards and a note that reads:
Just wanted to share some new work that I will be debuting @ MoCCA in April… Enjoy!
Thanks Daniel! More Mono is a b/w zine of mono prints made by Daniel in 2014–2015 using acrylic paint, some glass and paper. Giving In is a full color comic by Daniel about this lady who is out camping with her pals when she sees some sparkly things that lead her into a tree gash portal to a cave world where she meets the naked cave-person of her dreams who teaches her about being naked and naked cuddling. To see more and get your own copies head over to Daniel’s world and check out the previous letters and goodies he has sent Meathaus’s way on the Zender tag.
Hey check it out, Tracey Elle wanted to let you know that she is drawing twenty free portraits of people from the Internet today on the Internet starting at 10am EST using the computers and reddits and stuff like that, and you could be one of them. Since I’m old and tan and wrinkly (just back from Fajardo which accounts for the tan part) I have no idea what she’s talking about but you should definitely try to click over to her Tumblr and gather more information. I’m kidding about not knowing what is going on, the truth is that Tracey was in a class that I taught once at UArts and I personally know she is dedicated to constantly growing as an artist and is super enthusiastic about everything and I’m not surprised that she will soon be going to a summer program at Gobelins followed by studies at CalArts. Anyway you can get free portraits from her until they run out and then commission portraits from her on indiegogo to help fund her studies. I’ve gathered that there is no link to send you to yet but after 10am EST check Tracey’s Tumblr for the info.
