Angela McKinnon's new series 'Life's Dope' celebrates the complexity of cannabis culture. Using collage, mantra-like typography, and zen doodles she hopes to inspire dialogue concerning addiction and personal growth. The background is made up of delicately put together pages of John Grisham novels (this one specifically 'The Appeal'). Many ask the significance. It started as up-cycling an abused book on the side of the road and continued as a deep appreciation for the authors style of communication and vocabulary. Those familiar with Grisham's work might find his legal, corporate lingo an interesting juxtaposition to Angela's words of positivity.
