Yet another coffee stain from work. Black ballpoint, red pencil and the secret ingredient of course. I’m thinking about getting these matted and framed, see if I can get them in a gallery or a art show or something. The thing I like the most about these is they aren’t perfect, there are wrinkles in the paper, folds, creases, rips and tears, crude coffee stains. Place these on a nice clean white matte and encased in a nice pale whitewash frame, I think that would be a good contrast in textures. I think one could come up with some good subliminal meanings behind the contrasting textures if one was so analytically inclined. But that could be stretching it.

A new one from work, black ballpoint, coffee and red pencil. If any one is wondering, I use the tip of my finger to apply the coffee washes. You don't need fancy expensive brushes to make interesting art, get your hands dirty I say, it's more fun. I gave the eyes a little bit of color in Photoshop, and thats it.
