charcoal on recycling

Debbie of life untitled has been using charcoal on her recycling. She says it's cheaper than using drawing paper. It's a great idea and asks the question: what other recyclables and rubbish can be used as canvasses for art?

The honest truth: We don’t like passion. It scares us. Plain and simple.

Passion is a threat to our carefully contrived societies that rely on the mindless droning on of things we loathe. We insist on insisting that life is meant to be hard. That we were meant to work, not play; dread, not enjoy.

And as adults we keep ourselves stuck there, feeling guilty when we have wild, hilarious fun doing what we love.
