Next Saturday 17th November between 2-4pm, Mr Bingo will be in Soma for the Bristol signing of his new book, 'Hate Mail'. Come along during this time to meet the genius illustrator and get your books signed.
In his own words, "Last year I sent a postcard to a stranger called Jonathan Hopkins. It said on it "F*ck you Jonathan, f*ck you and f*ck your sh*t legs". People seemed to be into it so I opened a service on my website, inviting strangers to pay me in return for an offensive postcard addressed to them (or whoever they ordered it for).
"I persevered with the project and now with over 400 'Hate Mails' under my belt, I am pleased to announce that Hate Mail (the book) is out now and available to buy."
It has been rumoured that there could be bottles of 'Hate Ale' at the signing, brewed specially for his London book launch in a brewery.
Books will be available to purchase in Soma from the 17th.
You can read Creative Review's review of the book here.
The signing will be held on Saturday 17th November, 2-4pm, 1st Floor Gallery Space, Soma, 4 Boyces Avenue, Clifton, Bristol, BS8 4AA.

The incredibly popular Crispin Finn handmade Year Planner is into its 5th year!
As ever they have tried to improve on last years and have made a few practical adjustments.
The size of the grid has been adjusted and separated out from each month to allow for additional annotation that spans across many dates. They have also alternated the colour of months to allow for easy tracking. Weekends are clearly defined and easily spotted as a block with a thick border. Public holidays are highlighted with a small sun icon, and as always they've kept the design practical, functional but also aesthetically pleasing and in their trademark red, white and blue.
Embossed 2 colour screenprint on 120gsm 100% recycled, biodegradable white paper, measuring 997 x 700mm. Open edition.
Each planner comes hand folded and sealed in a screenprinted brown kraft bag.
Working predominantly in red, white and blue, a restriction they initially set themselves in order to hand produce simple and affordable designs, the colour scheme has become part of the Crispin Finn identity.
As well as commisioned projects and freelance work, they also produce limited runs of ephemera.
