WRITER/ACTOR R. O’DONNELL DELIVERS ‘JUNK MAIL 101’

Posted in NEWS with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 12, 2008 by got2write

R. O’Donnell & Barbara Hashimoto

Writer/actor R. O’Donnell, has been invited to perform his one-man show entitled Junk Mail 101 for the extended Barbara Hashimoto: Junk Mail exhibit, 2003 S. Halsted Street, Chicago, every Saturday in November. The 45 minute show will examine in a humorous light how junk mail effects our everyday lives. “It’s something Barbara and I discussed over a year ago,” says O’Donnell, “Since Barbara’s Junk Mail exhibit was awarded another six months, It was just time to unite for a common cause.”

Other special events throughout the year include Junk Mail Landscapes, Junk Mail Interiors, and Junk Mail Christmas where trees will be decorated using hand shredded Holiday Catalogues and other Holiday related Junk mail.

More recently, Barbara Hashimoto: Junk Mail exhibit, will open its gallery doors for an artist meet and greet from 12-4 PM today, July 12 at 2003 S. Halsted Street, Chicago, where the exhibit grows bigger everyday.

Junk Mail Facts: 100 million trees are cut down to produce junk mail annually. The majority of junk mail is produced from natural forests. In 2006, Americans received 77 billion pieces of junk mail. In 2006, more than 15 million trees were cut down to produce the 1.8 billion pounds of undeliverable junk mail. (That’s above and beyond what was delivered.) 44% of the junk mail received goes unopened into the landfill.

R. O’Donnell co-wrote the award-winning off-Broadway musical One & One, Radio City Music Hall’s A Manhattan Showboat, and co-founded the New Age Vaudeville theatre company, the New Variety cabaret, and the R. Rated television show.

Born in New Jersey and educated at Yale, Hashimoto’s work has been exhibited throughout Japan, The U.S. and The Middle East and is in more than 250 public and private collections including The Smithsonian Institution’s Museum of American Art, The Museum of Arts and Design (New York) and The National Museum of Women in the Arts.

R. O’DONNELL’S ‘THE KREEP’ GETS NEW LOGO FROM THE STREET

Posted in NEWS with tags , , , , , , , , on July 11, 2008 by got2write

Brazillia R. Kreep a.k.a ‘The Kreep’ is a forlorn Gothic poet and illustrator living in Kreepsville. For the syndicated column on Static Multimedia, ‘The Kreep’ received a new logo by Static Networx that was designed by underground street artist Dull1.  ‘The Kreep’, which features weird epic poems amidst sprinklings of the latest horror film lowdown is something Dull1 gets big-time, “I like all things horror, “ says the artist from a pay phone somewhere in Chicago, “because it’s a genre that I identify with. Growing up on creature features, Ed “big Daddy” Roth, and kung fu Sundays, the design elements were always elegant and striking and their use of color was reminiscent of 60s psychedelia.”

Brazillia R. Kreep a.k.a The Kreep is a forlorn Gothic poet and illustrator living in Kreepsville.  The Kreep lives in an old Victorian mansion near lake Scares.

Static Networx is a small creative boutique that strives to build meaningful relationships between brand and consumer. 

Dull1 designs exclusively for Static Networx while remaining one of Chicago’s hottest subversive street artists.  Not to be confused with a graffiti artist, Dull1 uses a wide variety of techniques including wheatpasting, stickers, and stencils.
