I’ve had an obsession with the design that encompasses the single-use disposable industry. Plastic bags, coffee cups, takeout packaging. These items include images that are so ingrained in our daily lives, we’ve only been giving them a second thought because they are detrimental to the planet and our environment.
One day, we’ll all switch to reusable products to carry our food, water, coffee, and waste. I’m sure the new designs will be sleek and slick, but there’s nothing like an old, red “Thank You for Shopping Here” font.
Images are ink and gouache on paper, some with plastic bag or netting overlay.
