Doodled Consumption

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

Kate Bingaman Burt, a Portland based designer, caught the daily drawing bug in 2006.

She didn't doodle her shoes, or a building in her city. She was more interested in what was on her receipts.

"Our daily lives are filled with consumption ... parking tickets, coffee, packs of gum, shoes, electricity bills and burritos, "she writes. "Everything we buy has its own story to tell."

You can check out her doodled stories on the Obsessive Consumption blog or in the book she just released, which contains a selection of three years worth of her inky habit.
