Call for tattoos update:

 Thanks to everyone who sent us pictures of their Clowes tattoos! We've wrapped up the book project and no longer need submissions for it.

However, we will continue to post your tattoos in our Eightball Ink Flickr gallery. So keep sending your photos and check back for updates.

In addition to the tattoos, we had so much so much outstanding material for our book that we couldn't include it all. The good news is we'll be posting a lot of interesting Clowes art and related material in the coming months in anticipation of the book’s April 2012 release.
