Letter to Meathaus: Wren McDonald

Check it out Wren McDonald sent Meathaus a package with digital duplicator printed comics, sketchbook and postcard that reads:

“MEATHAUS is always an inspiration. Keep up the good work! ☺︎ -wren”

Thanks Wren. Please keep reading Meathaus websites and books even though it took four months to post you letter. It slipped through our tight set of protocols and methodologies, redundant fail-safes and back-up plans. After languishing in the P.O. box for a month I think it was in that pile over there for a few months. See, the P.O. box is the late-posting-guilt container. It allows letters to pile up there for a bit unseen before getting picked up and hitting the posting pile all at once. That way there isn’t a constant dribble of letters to Meathaus coming in, each one calling out to be read, fondled and appreciated almost always at inappropriate times. Some delays have occurred in timely posting.

But back to your package. Wren sent over PLANTR, What’s In Brick’s Bag, and Channel: a Wren McDonald Sketchbook. PLANTR is my favorite with delightful office scenes and plant-aliens. What’s In Brick’s Bag has a slice of life short story about Brick who lives in this crappy techno future that is really difficult to get around in but contains lots of consumer tech-gadgets that convert matter into different forms and can replicate replicated flowers. See more from Wren on his website and Tumblr where you can read and buy Brick’s Bag and also see a previous Meathaus post.

Roger Omar

Roger Omar sent Meathaus this envelope stuffed with beautiful things from interesting and fantastic artists. And I took an ass-long time to post it. Shame, shame on me. Lee-the-spring-semester-intern scanned some of these and had it set up for me but then I just needed to scan some more because everything is outstanding. So Roger engaged some artists to illustrate six authentic dreams from 8-10 year old children in Valencia, Spain, (and one has six dreams from a child in Tel Aviv, Israel) which remain the text accompanying each illustration, written in Spanish and English.

“Best Wishes,
and happy Dreams,
Roger Omar”

Thank you Roger, for such strange, folding items, part book, poster, or something else. Most of them have the dream text on the opposite side and more images. It is hard to illustrate here that most of the images above where you see only two pages are only a part of the panoramic accordion fold-out illustrations on each of these publications that flow the entire length of the side of paper. Maybe Roger’s got some on a website. Let’s check. So here is the website:

And it looks like you can check out more stuff and maybe get some books on Roger’s 6 Dreams Tumblr and here is a Flickr stash.

And of course the featured artists are Meathaus favorites: Matthew Houston, Thomas Wellmann, Max Fiedler, Wren McDonald, Amanda Baeza, and Roni Fahima.
