mysterious letters

two artists, Lenka Clayton & Michael Crowe, had this idea to send a handwritten letter to every household in a small irish town, after sending over 450 letters, they hoped it would bring the community together, promoting curiosity and discussion. and i think the end result is quite beautiful! its interesting to see how such a small idea and object become such a large creation

anshu

i got an email this weekend from one of our creative directors, merrie. she spends a lot of time in india, and shared this story with me about a little boy she befriended:
“this little boy’s name is anshu.

his family lives on the grounds of our friend kundan’s office and his father is the gardener.
kundan has developed a soft spot for him as he’s grown up because he is so ‘street smart’. he loves hanging with the big guys and doing what they do.
so, kundan decided to send him to a school that teaches english, which is the ticket to a better life in india. the school started only a few weeks ago, and we don’t know if the family will see the value of a good education over the years to come, but we are trying…hopefully it’s the start of something bigger.
i figured out no one had ever taught him his colors, so now everyday after ‘tutions’ he stops by our office and sorts my colors with me. (i work on my hindi, and he works on both hindi and english).”

uma -Sep 08, 2009, 4:47AM
hi merrie May god bless you and kundan abundantly for all your love and efforts !! Warm Regards Uma
Tiffany -Aug 19, 2009, 2:03PM
This is an awesome story. My eyes welled up a little! we really take all this for granted and it is nice to know, there is support out there.

this is chris butler, brother-in-law to our awesome graphic designer lizzy.
he describes himself/his art as “analytical, cheap, collage, fast, geometric, simple.”
cool stuff.

Courtney -Aug 16, 2009, 5:25PM
I can definitely see the analytical aspect. I just read the Time Traveler's Wife and for some reason this piece reminds me of the artwork Charisse does. I guess you have to know the book to know what I'm talking about though...
