Lumpy Cats


“Modern art = I could do that + Yeah, but you didn’t.”

You know those drawings Picasso did using just one line? You’ve probably seen some at IKEA.

Every time I see them I think what a simple, cool idea. And then, of course, I think I could easily do that.

The whole process took less than 30 minutes, and it was the funnest.

Lesson learned: it’s not as easy as it looks. Whatever it is.

P.P.S. You should try this sometime. It’s really fun.
