Welcome to the highly inspirational world of Keri Smith. Within the
pages of "The Pocket Scavenger", readers will be instructed to
collect a spectrum of quirky items: something that is miniature, a
stain that is green, something from the year you were born, a used
envelope, and more. Then, once their quarry is in hand, they'll
apply an alteration dictated solely by chance: create a funny
character, conceal it, add polkadots, remove a section, add
stripes, scribble on top, duplicate it (make a copy), fold, cut
into pieces & rearrange, turn into an article of clothing,
trace it/use the shape as basis for a new drawing, make it
'pretty', and so on. It's funny, moving, silly and serious. The way
you look at things will never be the same again. Keri Smith is an
author/illustrator turned guerilla artist. She has several
bestselling books, including the phenomenonal "Wreck This Journal",
"This is Not a Book", "How To Be An Explorer of the World", "Mess"
and "Finish this Book", all published by Particular Books.
