Obsessive Consumption, a collection of drawings

I love these type of drawings, gotta get this book and have a look. How funny is the statement I just made? I must have the NON-CONSUPTION book!!!! These are the times in which we live folks. :) Gotta have a laugh or two. Link.

Words by Kate:

"I've been drawing something that I purchase every day since February 5, 2006. Obsessive Consumption represents a selection of these daily drawings. I draw objects that are rather ordinary: Coke cans, Post-it notes, toilet bowl cleaner-sundry items that a lot of consumers have a shared experience with; items that we interact with, but don't really think about. I love documenting the mundane and, in turn, putting a personal face on something that is mass-produced. I make work about personal consumerism, market economies, guilt, joy, excess, more guilt, gifts, celebration, repetition, and the community of these shared experiences." —Kate Bingaman-Burt
