Have you ever had a habit that you kept to yourself, then one day realized that this habit actually has a name? And people (lots of people, maybe) actually do this thing too? When I was a kid, I always did anonymous little gestures for strangers. Things like, dropping drawings of eskimos into the supermarket freezer (drawn on paper snow flakes, of course).
I thought it was a bit odd so I kept it to myself.
But what do you know, this habit of mine does have a name. And so Keri Smith (ahh, she's the best) introduced me to the secret, satisyfying world of guerilla art.
The rush is free and easy. Just leave your doodlings behind, in secret, subtle places. Yesterday on the train, I found a little drawing of a goat in a straw hat. It made my whole day good.
If you're keen, The Guerilla Art Kit
by Keri Smith is a nice place to start. Or you could just get a pen and a scrap of paper, head outdoors and wing it.
