(Hello again to Jessica who is trying out for the SF team. Her first post is here.)

Artist Tom Woodbridge does two-minute portraits of people on the backs of coasters at his local brewpub. He gave me a handful out of the more than one hundred that he does on any given night, and I immediately fell in love with them. I started thinking about how this would be a great idea for my next get-together. Have each guest draw an illustration on the back of an ordinary coaster, and soon, you have yourself a little collection of artwork from your favorite people.

When I had more space, I tiled 5-10 of them on the wall in a great mosaic style. Now, in a small space, I still wanted them viewable, but have very limited wall space. I put them in one half of a Jonathan Adler lacquered box (my stack of Polaroid photos in the other half), and voila! Friends can leaf through them, and I still get to see my favorite condensation catchers cum works of art.
