Artist Statement

I started Obsessive Consumption in 2002, when I decided to photograph all of my purchases and, in turn, created a brand out of the process to package and promote. I am currently hand-drawing all of my credit card statements until they are paid off, drawing something I purchase every day and continuing to make piles of work (zines! pillows! photographs! buttons! more drawings!). The drawings in this edition document the things that I bought over the course of one week, two weeks, one month and four months in the summer of 2009.
