Markers by Markers

I admire the simpleness and commitment of this project by Allister Lee. Inspired by a Guinness Book of World Records entry for the largest collection of cigarette rolling papers, Toronto-based artist Allister Lee of Studio B.I.B decided it was time to set a goal for himself and started collecting black markers. To "mark" the 500th acquisition in this graffiti-culture obsession, and midpoint to his overall goal (and hopefully Guinness record!), he's released a hand-drawn print that shows the complete historical and international spectrum of the 500 pens in his collection to date.
