'Gorgeous and funny! Like a labrador doing stand-up' - Noel Fielding
For fans of The Bunny Suicides, Simon's Cat and 101 Uses of a Dead Cat
comes the hilariously offensive Hate Mail by Mr Bingo.
Mr Bingo loves post. In April 2011 he launched a service on his website, where, for a
small payment, he would send his customer a vintage postcard with one of his iconic
drawings and an offensive message on the back. So the purchaser gets a much sought-after
original signed drawing, the postman gets a laugh and the world gets a little bit happier.
Six days after launch, it had become so popular that he had to temporarily close the
service. But fear not! Mr Bingo is teaming up with Penguin to create Hate Mail, a
book that will showcase 100 of his favourite comic cards.
Mr Bingo didn't learn a lot at school but he did discover one valuable thing: he was
good at making people laugh. Now an enormously successful illustrator based in Shoreditch,
he is "drawing stuff" for the likes of The Mighty Boosh, QI, the Guardian,
MTV and The New York Times. As well as making pictures, Mr Bingo regularly
speaks at events on his favourite topics, such as religion, the internet, dating, animals,
art and terrorism.
