You know I really like Art House Coop and their Sketchbook Project. But all spring I’ve also been doing some of their weekly projects, that have been fun and very amusing. The current one is called “The Mystery Project.” I received a nice Prismacolor marker in the mail along with the instructions which included a “theme” and the instructions to create a small work and install it in a public place, leaving it for somebody to find, while documenting the process. Just about then I got some “packaging” which was a series of little cards. I was having a coffee and trying to think what to do when it came to me suddenly…me, the drawer of hundreds of cups of coffee:
