The typical turn off of books in this genre is the varied and pricey materials required for each of the projects. Not so with the projects in Tattoo a Banana. Mr. Hansen’s fun and creative projects use everyday materials such as bananas, thumbtacks, trash bags, and permanent markers. To say the least, this book makes arts and crafts affordable. The suggestion is that any and every object one encounters may be employed in creative purposes. Phil Hansen’s view of the world is inspiring—reminding the reader of artists who work in found art media.
The projects featured in this book appeal to all ages and are as interesting and elaborate as you choose to make them. In expanding our notions about art, Phil Hansen suggests new ways to see the world: a robust view unfettered by preconceptions of what Art really constitutes. - New York Journal of Books
