Mail Me Art is a British-based project, run by Darren Di Lieto, the
founder and co-editor of the illustration news portal the Little Chimp
Society. Over the course of a year, the first Mail Me Art project
brought together a vast collection of artistic work sent in the form of
mail by both professional and amateur artists of all ages from across
Mail Me Art culminated in the publication of the book Mail Me Art: Going Postal with the World’s Best Illustrators and Designers and the exhibition, held in London during April 2009.
Mail Me Art 2 is now up and running.
Mail Me Art 2 will run for around 6-8 months, with a signed copy of
the book plus an art-related prize given away each month to the artist
of our favourite submission. We are planning to propose a follow up
book, possibly called Mail Me More Art, and if we have half as many
submissions as the first Mail Me Art project did we will run another
exhibition. As with the first project, the artists will receive 70% of
the sale value, less any gallery fees incurred. Click here to see
