Shit Alphabet, 2015


Shit Alphabet


These drawings were made during a series  in which I made a drawing every day. During this time I had two rules–first, that I would work every day, and second, that anything was acceptable as topic. At a certain point, at a loss for a subject, I started to draw my own poop. It became clear after a few days as I continued to draw each morning, that I was producing letters. Eventually I decided to complete the whole alphabet. However, the M remained elusive. Photo: Jhoeko
