About the author…

Darren Di Lieto is the creator of Mail Me Art, an international mail art project that started in 2006. He is also the founder of the illustration news portal The Little Chimp Society. He has interviewed everyone from Jon Burgerman and John Howe to James Jean and Bob Staake for the LCS. His numerous art projects have been featured or mentioned in publications such as Digital Arts, Computer Arts, Design Week and The Telegraph over the years.

In August, 2013 there will also be an exhibit of the work in the book in London, England at The Framers Gallery, where they'll also be having a book launch party, which you can read more about HERE.

Below is the piece I made for this project, and thankfully it safely made it to Darren in England. I wish I could make the show, however, when I get the book I'll do a blog post about it asap. Peace!
