drawing challenge - second hand

Two cardboards with bits of text from an Italian box.


In "homework with black square" (left) is a calculation my father once made for me long ago.
In  "homework I", I also added  a small piece of an old rag that was once a fitted sheet.


"White"and "Blue". The piece  left was originally the  backside of the piece right.


In "Bolzano" and "Italia" I've used parts of the cover of an italian roadmap.


In "Don't look back"(left) and "Book" I've used a kind of notation paper to work on.

This week's drawing challenge is "second hand" and I've looked for examples  in which the material gets a second life.

I love these! Especially the "homeworks"

I like the way you used in a new composition. It becomes something new while it's old. You gave history a new level!

Well done Eric. There are a lot of us who enjoy re-purposing bits of ephemera and using them in art. That's my most favourite thing to do. Hope your weekend is rolling along nicely.

Your use of second-hand materials is always effective, Eric.

What a great series of 2nd hand included material! I totally love the two italian roadmap versions. So powerful and dynamic! I love red anyway, so these are surely my favourites.
