Please read this before getting in touch.
I love receiving all kinds of out of the blue emails about Notes To Strangers, so feel free to send me one.
HOWEVER, below may save you some time.
No, I can't include corporate/ marketing/ personal messages in the notes, they are art.
No, I don't do sponsored posts.
No, I'm not going to collaborate with you if you send me an email saying 'lets collaborate' without any idea of what or how.
No, you can't have my permission to make T-shirts / phone cases / reproductions of my work.
No, I'm not going to do anything for 'the exposure' or 'the opportunity'.
No, I'm not going to talk about your product on my stories if you send me a freebie.
No, I won't speak at your company/event for free if you are a business (but I will if you are a school).
Yes, I am open to working with brands (but please see the first no).
Yes, I would love to bring NTS to the city where you live - everywhere is on my list, but this costs time & money.
Yes, you can invest in my work, when my shop is open and feel free to enquire about individual pieces, and or commissions.
Yes, I'm open to doing all kinds of press, podcasts, interviews and media.
Yes, I would love to help you with your student project - when I have the capacity to (which is rare I'm afraid).
Yes, if what you are offering is a fucking cool adventure.
And one last thing:
If you would like to go on a date with me, please JUST SAY SO!!!!
It's extremely confusing/annoying/time wasting if this is your intention but you try and disguise it as a business/media/collaboration opportunity.
Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you out of the blue.
