Kate Bingaman Burt Found a Unique Way to Deal With Credit Card Debt

Illustrator Kate Bingaman Burt creates works about the things we buy and the emotions attached to the stuff we own. Drawing was initially a form of self-punishment and strategy to deal with the credit card debt she had accumulated. She was obsessed with buying and consuming, so she started drawing every item she purchased between 2006 and 2014 every single day. She even uploaded drawings of her bank statement and began to slowly share her work with the online community. Today she’s debt-free but still interested in creating work around personal consumption, joy, privacy, guilt, excess, and the everyday.

You can see some of her daily drawings below and find more of her work in our publication Visual Families.
