2020 Book 12: #spare-a-square

#spare-a-square

When toilet paper was seen as a rare commodity

Never in a million years would I have thought that toilet paper (TP) would cause such stress. But turns out that toilet paper and sanitizer were the first things to be horded when the Covid-19 Quarantine started in March of 2020.

And thats where I got the idea for this book. If TP is so rare, lets “#spare-a-square” for art’s sake.
The project asked for artwork to use one 4×4 sheet of TP, it could be painted, folded, drawn on, basically anything they wanted, but only one sheet, and as you can imagine since artists like to work outside the box, some decided to send me their individual interpretations. I know you’ll enjoy the journey into the world of TP in a way you have not seen before.

Available from amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B088VVLJVQ?ref_=pe_3052080_397514860

NOTE: Most artists kept within their style, but remember, TP is not easy to work with AND its intended to dissolve in water. Be sure to check out the Artists website for complete samples of their art.
A big thank you to all the artists who participated.

Book 1: OECW: What are you Saving from Extinction?

Our Ever Changing World: Through the Eyes of Artists, Book 1, began with an inquiry into the quote by Frida Kahlo. “I paint flowers so they will not die.” Then the project grew into the question of “What are you saving from extinction?” and finally morphed into a sharing of stories, a special moment-in-time in an artists’ life. A possible aha! moment of awakening and connecting for them.
