Mr Bingo

One night in 2011, a drunk illustrator called Mr Bingo felt the urge to send a hand-drawn offensive postcard to someone. He threw it open to people on Twitter, who couldn’t resist being abused through the mail.

Over the last few years, he’s opened up the Hate Mail project 12 times, and each time it’s sold out within days. He’s had a collection published through Penguin Books, and a 2015 Kickstarter to fund a high-end art book of his notorious work was funded within 9 hours. Rewards included going round to people’s houses to do their washing up, and a date in a Wetherspoons of their choice.

Mr Bingo has been spotted in TIME, Esquire, the New Yorker and the New York Times.
