Obsessive Consumption

Kate Bingaman has been drawing one thing she buys every day for 190 days and counting. Character-full line drawings document the spoils of everyday life and highlight the pennies we all spend without thinking. There are no Manolos here, no splurges or treats, nothing even likely to induce the all-too well known guilt as you stride out of the shop thinking - actually, when will I wear this? Should I perhaps have paid the credit card bill first?

Peter Callesen

Most people wouldn't use words like spectacular, breathtaking or awe-inspiring in relation to paper-cuts (especially since the phrase paper-cuts generally brings to mind a minor office injury) but I think it's justified in this case.
