I think the collecting gene skipped a generation in my family. My mother is such an anti clutter person that she has empty cupboards in her house. Well, I seem to be the opposite. Bubble gum wrappers were one of the first things I started collecting. They were popular at the time, cheap, you could collect the wrappers, the tattoos or stickers inside (which I made into artworks)and of course, the gum itself, that gave me a sore jaw and no doubt contributed to my dental bills. I even collected the chewed gum in a 20 cm ball until it was deemed disgusting and binned. Here are some samples of wonderful low budget gum graphics.
