Brief Wacky Mention By Jonathan Lethem
« on: June 15, 2022, 07:38:51 AM »
Hey Everyone!

I want to share with you which this amazing (to me anyway) Wacky Packages mention...a while ago, I had the biggest thrill of selling some original art to my favorite author, Jonathan Lethem....we communicated a bit and he told me his publisher is putting out a book of the art he owns (he like me, grew up in Brooklyn in the 70's and is a huge pop culture nerd) and these Ubik spray cans I made for him will be in the book. Anyway that was a while ago...so he emails me last night directing me to this article he wrote about Philip K. Dick's UBIK. Not only is he an amazing writer (Motherless Brooklyn, Gun With Occasional Music etc) but he's a Philip K. Dick expert and writes about him and his work often...anyway, the article is a bit long but he mentions me in an amazingly flattering way at the end...and mentions my Wacky Packages...I was floored for sure!
