Lately, probably because I've been spending so much time on the computer at work, I've really felt the urge to work with my hands and make something non-digital. So, I decided to cut up and collage two New York Times Style magazines. I have all the Style magazines going back years, but I never really look at them anymore. So my thinking is, if I collage the images I like, I can get rid of the clutter of magazines I never read while getting way more out of them than just paper sitting on a shelf. I haven't collaged in ages, which kind of shows in these compositions I put together, but I think they came out alright. It's nice that it's really easy to do - all you need is a big sketchbook, scissors, glue, and a brush to put the glue down in a more controlled way. Hopefully I'll have time to do more of these soon, and I'll be posting them here when I do.
