::: Canon Ink Cartridges - what to do ?? :::

What does one do with their empty Canon Ink Cartridges?

Make Cartridge-Ade?

These cute little cartridges just don't want to go into the trash.. they want to be I went to the CANON website ... and there was recycling information... but none for these little guys..
Canon has a program to recycle the following:
  • Binoculars
  • Camcorders
  • Cameras (digital/film)
  • Fax Machines
  • ImageCLASS Products
  • PC Copiers
  • Printers
  • Projectors/Video Equipment
  • Scanners
ALL GOOD & NICE...BUT what I really think is needed is a program for cartridges... so many more cartridges.. so much more recycling...
SO, I emailed CANON but have not heard back yet (just being positive.. its been awhile)

AND Office Depot no longer excepts CANON cartriges for recycling.. (not sure why)

again the word .. SO, I have sent many a cartridge off in these little MAIL IT BACK IT'S FREE packets.. (that I pick up at the local POST OFFICE)

BUT, once again I think CANON should provide something- maybe with purchase for the proper disposal/recycle of these used ink cartridges..

Please let me know if any of you have a fast easy way for responsible disposal / recycling of these CANON ink cartridges.

and for today.. I will make CARTRIDGE-ADE!

::: Classic Cadillac all wrapped up!!! :::

thanks to John Vilagi - canvas wrapped printer extraordinaire... I was able to view and sign the latest print of the "Classic Cadillac" on Robertson in LA (weho) literally on the street!

very excited... this print will be part of a silent auction this weekend that will benefit Canyon Acres - Children and Family Services

the "Classic Cadillac" originally made its debut in the "Instant Gratification"
show in November 2005 with several other wall sized lightjet prints made from Polaroids. "Classic Cadillac" was shot with the Polaroid Mini Portrait camera. - not so mini!

:::my Polaroid sx-70:::

sharpie drawing on white paper of my trusty TAN SX-70 that I picked up one day in March 1987 while driving over Laurel Canyon at a garage/yard sale... I picked the camera up for $20 and a little black night stand for $15.00... needless to say... I still have the camera but the night stand
is long gone...

in the mid eighties all you needed was an sx-70/film/paper clip or toothpick if you were at a meal, and you were in business ... manipulating your images just under the surface of the Polaroid.. as if your Polaroid was a WACOM tablet and your paper clip the software

**the effect was a painting/like/brush-stroke/quality given to the Polaroid...

thank you Polaroid and of course Mr. Land for all your ingenuity...!!!
