Art Attack: Newspaper Art?

I think this is so genius.  This piece is called "Overheard on the Titanic" and the artist blacked out words in a newspaper article (with a sharpie!), leaving only these choice words revealed.  I want.  Actually, I want to make - it would have been neat to make one with a newspaper article from each city I've lived in - or travelled too!  Oh, for a time machine.

In any case, because I was Captain Distracto Friday & Saturday, I'm still marking this morning.  But I'm hoping that by this afternoon, I can start working my canvas.

P.S. I originally read about this piece on A Cup of Jo.


  1. Tanya... totally awesome! I wouldn't even know what direction to bring it in! You probably have so many options! Can't wait to see what you do! <3

  2. I love it! What a great idea. I'm a big fan of refrigerator poetry, and this takes it to a new, artistic level. I don't know why your email didn't come through. That email address is supposed to redirect to my personal gmail address. Hmmmmm...try Maybe my SIL disabled the other one for some reason. Does this mean you're coming to Texas soon?

  3. I also love fridge poetry. I finally cracked open a kit my mom gave me, now that my fridge is no longer a major eyesore!

    And yes. Texas, here we come. At some point.


You've made my day - I love hearing from you! I approve comments only to keep out the spam, so don't worry if your comment doesn't pop up right away.
