This is the greatest. I love your creativity.

colormekatie said...

Thanks so much everyone! To answer your questions-I only put my paper pieces up on abandoned buildings or empty warehouses (there's tons in brooklyn!).

I sometimes get crazy neighbors that look out their window and think I'm painting on the walls and they scream at me. I show them that it's just a piece of paper and they feel silly for getting so worked up over nothing ;)

Kelli said...

My favorite post yet!!!

Melissa~ said...

I've always been so bad for packman, like really bad.
But maybe I'm best for this packman.

Katie! This is awesome!!! But how do you post all your brilliant artwork in public spaces without getting in trouble/fined?

colormekatie said...

Well it's just paper and tape. I'm not damaging any property and I always remove the pieces later that day so they don't fall down and turn to trash.
