Dear Madam or Sir:
This collection began as a mere project meant to relieve time-consuming boredom. The job that inspired The Office Artist is now in the past, but her project continues; expanding into napkins, t-shirts, books and the occasional post-it.
The Office Artist finds solace in humanity by revealing peoples’ darkest and loneliest truths. With absolute honesty Laughter rejoices, regardless of its maddening, awkward or delirious state. With open eyes, one could enjoy The Office Artist drawings, maybe even pop a button from a tightly tucked shirt or audibly snort to your cubical neighbor’s disgust. But with closed eyes there are no guarantees other than darkness.
