Loo Roll : charcoal trash drawing

Charcoal Drawing What can I say? I've seen these tubes 10,000 times before.

So have you.

But have you ever noticed their beautiful spiraling spine; the ripped shreds of paper left clinging to the roll; or seen the contrast between the rough dark exterior cardboard and the perfect smooth white interior?

I find something very satisfying about the way the light reveals the underlying perfection of the geometric cylinder, but it is the man made imperfections that make each one interesting, make each one unique.

So when was the last time you contemplated a loo roll?

(having a tough time naming this one, so please help me out and leave a comment - thanks!)
