I realized that there was a danger there wouldn't be enough of a "me" or recycled element in this piece. Still pondering this fact, I stopped off at the grocery store. While walking back to the car, I spotted the glint of metal. To my surprise, it was a pair of glasses that had been flattened by a car. Wasn't that just perfect? The glasses were not quite the right colour (dark blue and silver), but I could fix that with a few dabs of alcohol ink. Recycling at it's finest, but more importantly they also hinted at the "me" element. A little known fact is that I've been wearing glasses since I was six years old. I don't wear contacts, just the glasses and they're actually one of my earliest memories. I remember that my first pair of glasses was a blue plaid with a matching key chain (the key chain was a little pair of glasses in the same plaid). I thought it was soooo cool!!
