Announcing Wooster Mobile

src="http://www.woostercollective.com/images2/woosterpostcard.jpg" />


After many months of development and planning,
we’re pleased to announce today the launch of href="http://www.woostercollective.com/mobile/"> “Wooster Mobile” a Wooster
curated art gallery of images which you can download onto your mobile phones in
cities around the world.

Our goal with the Wooster Mobile project is
to provide artists with a new revenue stream and at the same time, generate
funds for a terrific cause. Each artist receives a royalty payment from every
download you make of their work. In addition, all of the Wooster Collective
revenue is being donated to a wonderful non-profit organization called href="http://www.keepachildalive.org/">Keep A Child Alive. Keep A Child
Alive provides life saving drugs to children and families who are dying of AIDS
in Africa simply because they don’t have access to the drugs that can save and
prolong their lives.

Please know that the platform we’re using to
deliver the wallpapers is very complex and many of the features are brand new.
It was important for us to make sure that this mobile offering was not a “US
thing” limited to people in the States. We wanted to make sure that artists and
fans all over the world could participate. Because of this, we are calling the
next few weeks a “Beta Test” to the program. We very much need your feedback to
work out any kinks in the system. We don’t anticipate any problems, but it’s
important that you send us your feedback so we know what’s working and what we
can do different to make the experience even better. If the wallpapers are not
available in your city, or if you phone is not included, be sure to let us know.
We’re working on making them available to everyone across the world.

/>This mobile project has been a joint effort between us, the artist Logan Hicks
in Los Angeles, and Mark Ghuneim of Wiredset in New York. We thank them for all
of their hard work in putting this together.

Please go to href="http://www.woostercollective.com/mobile/">www.woostercollective.com/mobile

Calma, Spazmat, Flowerguy, Labrona, KGBE Rotgut, and many more.
