Newspaper blackout

This artist doesn't need all your words.

Austin Kleon is known for taking a permanent marker to newspapers and eliminating all the words he doesn’t need to make poetry. He even put out a book about it called Newspaper Blackout. Austin has worked as a web designer and now as a copywriter for Springbox, an interactive marketing firm in Austin, Texas. We don’t know what his living situation is, but we assume that if he lives with someone, they’ve become adept at grabbing the morning paper first.
