ten dollar drawings is a blog helmed by alicia lynn carrier, a talented artist living in portland, oregon. for just ten bucks, alicia will send you one of her original pencil drawings on a paper bag, which can then be framed and put on the wall. alicia takes requests for the paper bag drawings, and also offers her signature drawings on wooden blocks. some of my favorites are the teacup, the cupcake, and the garden gnome. these drawings would be great to have in your home or to give as gifts.
