Shopping List Project

I have been collecting found shopping lists for several years, planning to use them for an unknown purpose. I started illustrating them for the #100dayproject in 2017.

I find these discarded lists on the ground and in shopping baskets almost every time I go to the grocery store. After finding many, I began looking for them, especially when I traveled to a new country and might find one in a new language.

Some lists are funny, many have misspellings or are illegible, a few have interesting things on the back side or margins. I have always been fascinated by these lists. Who wrote the list, what are they cooking, why did they toss it on the ground or leave it behind?

Below are a few of the shopping lists I have illustrated. Check my instagram to see #100daysof shoppinglists and read more about the stories behind each particular list.
