I Love Hate Mail

You'd normally be offended if someone insulted you, and you'd probably be doubly offended if you'd had to pay for the privilege. But if Mr Bingo insults you, you're one of the lucky ones. Every time Mr Bingo advertises new slots for his Hate Mail project they sell out in a few minutes. I've tried to get myself some Hate Mail 3 or 4 times now with no joy.

The idea is simple. You pay Mr Bingo a tiny sum (I can't remember how much off hand) and he sends you an original… hand-drawn… one of a kind… insult!



Which means the purchaser gets a signed original drawing, the postman gets a laugh and a story to tell his mates, and the whole world is a little happier. It definitely makes me a little happier to see new Hate Mail examples pop up around the internet.

And if you're unlucky in your quest for Hate, like me, you are now IN luck. Because some of Mr Bingo's favourite Hate Mail has been collected in his new book which is imaginatively titled, Hate Mail. The book will be available October 11th, and if you follow Mr Bingo on twitter he's been announcing a bunch of (UK) dates where he will be doing book signings and things like that.

Letter by Letter

Drawn words are (by far) what fill the pages of my sketchbook more than any thing else. I love the lines, curves and detail that go into making each letter form. It's something that I will always lean on, especially on the days where I have a creative block with what subject matter to draw. So to get the momentum going I just pick a letter from the alphabet and bring it to life.

Mary Kate McDevitt does this with phenomenal skill. She's a full time illustrator whose done work for some big time clients, and now has a daily project where she draws one single letter from the alphabet. You'll do yourself a favor to check her site often for inspiration. Below are letters Y, Q, C, G, and U drawn by Miss McDevitt.

A Case for Snail Mail

Take a look at these hand-drawn postcards by Carolyn Sewell. Colors, letters, lines and curls, I might just beg to be her peep.

Fan Mail, Part VII

Got the above image in an email this morning from Julie Quigley. In it she also confesses to loving Doodlers Anonymous and links to a blog of hers with a ton more doodled eggs. Quite appropriate with the Easter holiday approaching this weekend. You'd be lucky to go on an egg hunt for these pretty things.

Fan Mail, Part VI

Visit Gizem Vural's tumblr blog for a visual diary into her life as a graphic design student living in Istanbul, Turkey. Her sketches speak volumes of her day-to-day and I especially like that we get to see her process from sketch to final. See more »

Paper Airplane

This is far more than just animated doodles. The drawings of Betsy Walton have come to life through music, movement and layers, in such a way that they've even made the mundane topic of email marketing worth caring about. Watch the film here or click to see more of Betsy's work.
