Sometimes art happens in small places. In the margins of a notebook. A doodle on a meeting agenda. Or on Post-It notes found around the office, as in the case of this full collection by Austin artist Kennon James. Aimless scribbles became full drawings in the tiny format, and even after he left the corporate environment, he found himself returning to Post-It Notes as a medium for warm up illustrations, or to create roughs for larger projects. Within the pages of this collection of 3x3 art are pieces he created from daily prompts, focused drawings, and other creations liberated from the expectations of a larger canvas.
Sometimes, it pays to create small.
