Evolution of a #wheatpaste. Portrait of @ThaneKoi, one year later

What is the point of a piece that is meant to be temporary?  Work that is impermanent reminds us that nothing in life is permanent, that every state is temporary and transitory.  Contemplating this concept teaches us to embrace change in our life, instead of working against it.  When others notice a piece that is there one day and gone the next it creates a kind of energy/excitement within the community. – Keri Smith

As mentioned before, China Marker is my medium of choice for my graphic novel.  When I die, bury me with a fresh china marker box and a pad of newsprint.  Then cremate me ’cause I’m claustrophobic.
