The Astrohaus team commissioned renowned artist Todd McLellan to create art based on the Freewrite, and, boy, did he deliver. Todd has a photo series, currently touring with the Smithsonian, called "Things Come Apart," where he disassembles everyday objects, and he gave our beloved Freewrite the same treatment.
Over the next 12 days, we'll be releasing exclusive looks into Todd's artistic process on our channels, as well as running a treasure hunt to celebrate his artistic gift!
Treasure Hunt Details
Starting today, August 26th, the Astrohaus team will be hiding 12 pieces of "Freewrite Disassembled" (shall we say... we disassembled it further? Ha.) across our platforms. Social media, this blog, our website, and even our email newsletter--it's all fair game.
Clues will be announced here every day at 12PM EST until September 6th. September 6th's clue will release at midnight and winners will be announced at 1PM EST. The participants who find the most pieces will win art and an accessory or poster discount, on us.
Make sure you email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you find a piece! You do not have to find each piece the day of, just as long as it's before Day 12 at 1EST.
