this was a little story that caught my eye recently. Toronto based designer Ginette Lapalme found a sketch book and a pencil case of felt tips put out on the pavement with some other rubbish whilst out walking one night. she couldn't resist and took it home and began creating a series of artworks using what she had found and called 'a gift from the universe. the results are now popping up on etsy here. also shown are other examples of ginette's work, including painted sticks !
