In 2008, after some changes in my life, I experienced very difficult moment.
To survive as I cannot pay for my colors, I have start to use free advertisement magazines and newspapers to do artwork with...and it works. Each one is made of thousands of pieces of those magazines.
It has become an habit to use them to remember hard time.
