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 dana@mid2mod.com. 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.
