Recently I discovered Darren Di Lieto’s Mail Me Art project for the first time, and at the time he was putting a call out for submissions so I sent him an email and was chuffed to be sent an invitation to be one of 200 illustrators involved.
“Mail Me Art is a fun little project that was created by Darren Di Lieto of The Little Chimp Society in late 2006. He was looking for a way to connect on a real world level with all of the brilliant and talented illustrators who had become part of his community and network. Mail Art was the perfect way to accomplish this task. The Mail Me Art project has held exhibitions up and down the UK, and was published as very nice book by HOW Books. It has also been featured or mentioned by Digital Arts, Computer Arts, Design Week and The Telegraph over the years. Mail Me Art is still going strong to this day and there seems to be no stopping it!”
Here’s my finished envelope, raring to go!
Darren has been busy organising an exhibition for the project which will show all of the illustrations submitted, and I believe there’ll be a book published alongside it. Exciting times!
