A message from Mark Bode:
Hello out there, just a note to people who may want a Bode tattoo and live or are visiting in Europe I will be tattooing at Evil From The Needle, 232 Camden High street in London, on the dates above.
I will be tattooing by appointment only so you must call ahead of time.

Some Fanta artist previews for the Post-It Show 3 at GR2.
December 13, 2008 - January 14, 2009
Curated by artists Mark Todd and Esther Pearl Watson and Giant Robot, the exhibition is slated to feature nearly 2,000 works by over 95 noted contributors each starting at only $20. These pieces will be on standard-sized 3 x 3 Post-It notes. (Larger sizes of 4 x 4 and 6x 6 will also be available.)
(*Speaking of Mark Todd -- he has a show at La Luz in LA coming January 2nd. Looks to include more of his beautiful Marvel Comics homages.)
Don't forget, if you want your order shipped by our Standard shipping option within the U.S. to arrive before Christmas, tomorrow (Friday, December 12) is the deadline to get your order in! (UPDATE: our shipping folks have informed me that if you're shipping to a P.O. box, you'll want to select First Class or Priority Mail shipping rather than Standard.) After that, you'll have until Monday for USPS Priority Mail delivery and until next Friday for 2nd Day UPS. We'll post reminders for those deadlines as well.
