Art: Trouty's Spam Catch instant lottery ticket by Artist Deanna Susanne Russo

Come join EBSQ's lottery mascot, Trouty in his newest scratch-off Ticket from the EBSQ Lottery. "Trouty's Spam Catch" is a $3 game that gives you the chance to win tons of everyones favorite canned meat product...MMMMmmmm SPAM!!!
Top prize 3 tons of Spam!!!
Grab your lucky penny and be hungry!

How To Play:
Scratch Spam can for prize then scratch trout pond get 3 same symbols or a YUM! and win!

Made from a collage of used instant lottery tickets and acrylic paints on 14"x18"x1/2" maple artboard. This piece contains over 45 different types of scratch-off tickets. I have had the idea to make spoof lottery tickets out of used lottery tickets for quite some time now and have collected hundreds of pounds of used scratch-off lottery tickets. This is the first piece I have created using this technique. Tearing up, collaging, and ultimately painting in the details I have found is very time consuming. Over 30 hours of tedious work went into " Trouty's Spam Catch "

One funny note:
The log near the "Trout Pond" is made entirely out of the Pennsylvania Lottery's mascot... Gus the groundhog.
