Progress Picture #1: Snowflakes

Due to request, I've started working on a collage that illustrates the following quote by Alice Childress, "Like snowflakes, the human pattern is never cast twice."

Here's the beginning sketch for the piece:

Snowflakes by collage artist Megan Coyle
Sometimes my sketches are used simply as guides for my pieces while other times I follow them pretty closely. This sketch is going to be used simply as a rough idea of the direction I want to go in. After collaging the figures, I'm going to lay down the text with magazine strips.

Congrats on being featured (I love the daffodil collage)!!! Can't wait to see the finished product... not to mention how perfect that quote fits with the DC area right now--a melting pot covered with snow :)
