abusive postcards hate mail project by mr. bingo


an example of ‘hate mail’ being sent by mr. bingo

 

 

one day, london-based illustrator mr. bingo sent a stranger – jonathan hopkins – an offensive postcard. from that point on, it was so enjoyed by all
that he opened a service where people could request abusive messages to be sent on their behalf. the rules of ‘hate mail’ render each piece of postcard ‘art’
to be completely random, specific requests are not allowed – you just ‘get what you’re given’. mr. bingo is also not responsible or liable for anyone
who suffers emotionally as a result of ‘hate mail’. the idea has produced over 400 illustrations and is now available as a book,
seething with a colorful collection of insulting pictures and words – the service is still available, however, only in the UK and due to its popularity is only open sporadically.
