Newspaper Blackout & Austin Kleon

Hello world!
This post is about Newspaper Blackouts, and no, not blackouts like the kind from WWII. This is an example of a newspaper blackout done by Austin Kleon:
I've made a few myself, using the Austin Chronicle, but they aren't nearly as cool as Austin Kleons.
My fav? Here we go:
Isn't that just so cool? Basically, Kleon takes any newspaper article and finds certain words he likes that fit together, and then blacks out the rest. He calls this Newspaper Blackout. To find more blackouts visit his website: http://www.austinkleon.com/
or visit his newspaper blackout archive: http://www.austinkleon.com/category/newspaper-blackout-poems/

Go write some blackout poems!
