My latest series.
I sat down with Amanda McCuaig over at Art threat to talk about my work.
So I sent Crystal one of these
The Awesome email I received.
Dear Mr. Sonny Assu,
My name is Crystal and I am in the Studio Art class at Pecatonica High School in Pecatonica Illinois. It’s ok if you don’t know where that’s at. Most people don’t. Pecatonica is a dinky little town in Northern Illinois. If you look at the Wisconsin/Illinois border, we’re right smack-dab in the middle. Well, you probably don’t really care about where Pecatonica is and that’s not really why I’m writing this letter. I am writing to see if you would like to help with a project that my Studio class is doing. We have to collect signatures from famous artists and I chose you. So, I was wondering if you could send me your autograph.
I think it is really really awesome how you take a brand name or something like that and change it to mean something. I always have loved art like that. It completely intrigues me and it makes me smile. It truly would be an honor to receive your autograph.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and I look forward to hearing back from you.
