Break Out The Crayolas, Cause Cheap Art Supplies Rock!

"Hearts coming out of my brain", crayola markers & pen on printer paper. 2016, by Matt Vaillette.

I made this crazy drawing with an 8 pack of crayola markers, one disposable pen, and a sheet of printer paper.

Cheap art supplies are great. They misbehave and lower our expectations. Enter: risk-taking, the star of fine art.

Sure you give up certain visual qualities... but that isn't a limitation. Also your artwork won't last 200 years.

Big whoop.

Go grab some crayolas, and be fearless!

Do you ever use cheap, worn out, or broken supplies and tools?
