Welcome to the highly inspirational world of Keri Smith.
Within the pages of The Pocket Scavenger, readers will be instructed to collect a spectrum of quirky items: something that is miniature, a stain that is green, something from the year you were born, a used envelope, and more.
Then, once their quarry is in hand, they'll apply an alteration dictated solely by chance: create a funny character, conceal it, add polka dots, remove a section, add stripes, scribble on top, duplicate it (make a copy), fold, cut into pieces & rearrange, turn into an article of clothing, trace it/use the shape as basis for a new drawing, make it 'pretty', and so on.
It's funny, moving, silly and serious. The way you look at things will never be the same again.
