Obsessive Consumption

obsessive-consumption.jpgThis week, I want to explore the sketchy line drawing style of several artists. I believe the recent trend marks a time when they are seen as ‘trendy’ instead of simple sketches, moving away from traditional painting and realism. I previously mentioned several artists namely Daisy de Villeneuve, Keren Richter, Liselotte Watkins.
* Obsessive Consumption was created by Kate Bingaman (29 year old Assistant Professor of Graphic Design at Mississippi State University) to showcase her love/hate relationship with money, shopping, branding, credit cards, celebrity, advertising and marketing. She documented all of her purchases for 28 months. The documentation started on January 22nd, 2002 and ended on April 22nd, 2004. She is currently hand drawing all of her credit card statements until they are paid off and also spends her time consuming, documenting and making.
