Phil Hansen is an artist I have been following for quite some time. It started for me with his influence video where he took the time to paint 30 people who influenced him in some way on his chest. Since then he has been taking on his goodby art (my favorite being "Jimi Hendrix on Fire"where he makes art out of everyday objects that by nature are temporary.
Now he has a new book called 'Tattoo a Banana" where he teaches a bit about using everyday objects to make art. Here is a little video about it. Pretty cool, would be fun to do with kids, and childish adults.
