January 2002, I created bugs out of found objects as part of my interim project at Birmingham-Southern College. The bugs are made out of the apparent objects, including a french fry, cracker, fortune cookie, and cough drop and material, wire, and lots of fingernail polish. The characters created of the bugs were so intriguing that I also made a book illustrating interactions and adventures of the bugs. The hardback book was entirely made by myself, and the illustrations and stories were meticulously xeroxed on a copy machine-before I had my own scanner. This project earned me the Best of Show award at the 2002 Juried art show at Birmingham-Southern College.
