post-it art

Giant Robot's annual Post-It shows are always a highlight of my year. Maybe it's because I have always had a fondness for office supplies. Maybe it's because I like tiny pretty things. Either way, the show is a wonderful chance to enjoy miniature and affordable pieces of art from over 100 participating artists.

I'm thrilled that this year's show will be my fifth. Each time, I think of the show as a chance to play and experiment. I've doodled scenes from my childhood, created miniature collages and illustrated an alphabet. This year, I tried my hand at quick yearbook portraits using just ink, Crayola markers and white out. I can't wait to see what everyone else did.

If you're in the LA area, you should check it out. The opening is Saturday, Dec. 11. The show runs through January 12. Find out more at Giant Robot.

Lovely, like the last portrait. The wall looks great too - its a nice idea to make an entire wall with decorated post-its.
P.S. How did you make the white parts of the image?

Thanks, Jennifer! The white parts were made with Liquid Paper or white-out, but acrylic or gouache would work too.
