31 Days of Collage #1

|Collage 1 of 31|

For August I wanted to give myself a little challenge/task to complete. Recently I’ve been following and been inspired by a lot of collage artists so I figured I’d do 31 Days of Collage.

Every day I’ll make and post a new collage (digital or physical collage depending on time constraints within that day)

I’m also thinking that at the end of the month it would be nice to offer them as prints if people are interested.

Playing with Packaging- Small Mixed Media Sculpture

Another Playing with Packaging piece- a small mixed media sculpture.

I hate throwing away interesting/nice looking packaging so I try to use it in some way. This is made from two cardboard boxes and one plastic container from Lily Lolo.

This piece includes layers of paint, ink, vintage imagery, flat back pearls, thread and cut text.

New Artwork: Thanks for Your Time

thanks_for_your_time

Thanks for your time, ink, acrylic paint, image transfer, collaged imagery, brown paper on card, 14 x 21 cm

This piece is long overdue as I’ve been busy with other things and that this piece stumped me for a little while. I produced two other pieces for the same song but wasn’t happy with either of them so I endeavoured to start again.

As you can see I was heavily influenced by the amazing official video for this song (watch it here on Youtube) The description of the video explains that it was created by ‘Lucy Dyson by cutting up old magazines, children’s books and photos of innumerable telephones.’

In my piece I used various images from vintage phone adverts, magazines and ‘retro’ inspired patterns to make up the background layer.

I wanted to include an image of Wally himself since I haven’t drawn him for a while. I decided to make him annoyed while holding out a phone receiver, again pertaining to the song.
