Dear Mattson Plummer,
I was heading to a show in Deep Ellum when I noticed a gallery full of people and decided to see whats up. It was the opening night of your show at Kettle Art after which I started following you on Instagram. I told myself I was going to go back and buy one of your surprisingly expressive watercolor skull illustrations with my next paycheck until I realized that you give them away.
Now it’s not that I’m too cheap to buy one; it’s the thrill of the hunt, or “#headhunt” as you call it. I want to earn it. I want to say it’s mine because I was on top of my Instagram game, tracked it down, and beat everyone else to it.
And what an engaging way to promote your art. I think it’s awesome and I can’t wait for my next opportunity to find one of your pieces. *cough* in Hamilton Park *cough*
PS: Might you be a fan of surf jazz duo The Mattson 2? Here’s a favorite of mine from them:
