Art-O-Mat Project

Just wrapped up another 50 blocks and dropped them in the mail today. A few weeks ago, I heard from Tina Agullar, a writer in Dallas who purchased one of my blocks. She ended up doing a nice interview with me for an online site called Very flattering and I feel lucky to get that kind of exposure from this fun project. I thought it would be a great way to promote the blog here and it's been just that.

I really enjoy hearing from all the Art-O-Mat collectors. On my insert that comes with each one of my pieces, I put a mention for folks to let me know where they've purchased their piece. I'm amazed at the number of folks that I've heard from via email. Last week I heard from yet another collector who writes,

"I'm attaching some photos of the whole experience. I actually chose the Random Fun option and was pleasantly suprised. Thanks from Dallas, TX." --Margaret Barajas

Attached to the email was six photos that showed the whole experience from the first look at the Art-O-Mat machine to her purchase of one of my iPhone images taken at Bok Tower & Gardens in Polk County. Thought I would share her email with you guys ...

To all of you that have made a purchase from the Art-O-Mat machines ... thanks so much for sending the emails and becoming fans and collectors! And oh, keep the emails coming ... always good to hear from you!
