Stuff: Get carded.

Though I don't normally plug stuff that get drops off in the comments of this here blog, but I thought this was nifty enough to highlight.

UK-based Coop has new art project called A Patchwork of Flesh. Here's his pitch, from the project specific blog:

I am attempting to amass a large collection of portraits of Frankenstein's Monster in as many different styles and in as many different media as possible as an ongoing art project. The only stipulation is that the size is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (standard artist trading card size).

I welcome cards from both amateur and professional artists.

I will be leaving blank cards with instructions and mailing address in galleries, colleges, art shops, on buses, handing them out in the street and wherever else I can think of.

If you are reading this and would like to get involved, please send a portrait to:

A Patchwork Of Flesh
45 Silversea Drive
Westcliff on Sea
United Kingdom

Each card I receive will be uploaded here to produce an on-line gallery, I then hope to put on an exhibition of these cards in a gallery.

Thanks a bunch for the plug. Hows about making a card and sticking it in the post. I'd really like to get some art from real horror fans.

Hey Coop,

I'm no artist, so I'm going to have to pass on this one. But there are quite a few talented artist that follow this blog regularly. I'm hoping your project gives them the itch and you get a few cards out of it.
