Many of you might not know this but I am a certified public accountant (CPA). Stop Judging and no I will NOT do your taxes! The reason I am telling you this is because I want to share with you the amazing portraits created by Michael Aaron Williams, who paints with coffee on ledgers from the 1920′s. and 193o’s. I must admit that during my sting as an accountant/auditor, I did drink lots of coffee but I never actually saw a ledger. I recall our old school partners tell us about these “ledgers” and how we had it “easy” now (Duhhh thats the point of technology). This goes without saying but thank god for Excel because the thought of keeping track of debits and credits and to create financial statements by hand is just outright ludicrous.
Nonetheless when I learned that Michael Aaron William’s uses ledgers to make art, I saw it as symbol of my transition of my old life (accountant) and my new life (Art Tech Entrepreneur). Ok. Not really. I just though his artwork is hot and wanted to share it with you guys. But all bullshit aside, the artists ability to use of coffee, which is a substance that is abundant and ledgers from 20′s, which are scarce, make for a cool new innovative way of making portraits. I wonder if he will be willing to do a portrait of me?
I hope you guys enjoy these portraits with coffee on old ledger paper.
