Mr. Kangaroo

Mr. Kangaroo by collage artist Megan Coyle

This piece was inspired by a trip that I took the Smithsonian's Natural History Museum. A lot of my animal collages are inspired by trips to the Natural History Museum when I swing by their animal exhibits - or the National Zoo. I'm really having quite a bit of fun making animal collages - after making so many figurative pieces earlier this year, it's definitely a nice change of pace.

I'm beginning a lot of exhibition prep work for the animal exhibition that goes up this coming Sunday, August 1st. My "to do" list includes framing all the artwork, preparing an artist talk, and getting together all my postcards, business cards, etc. to set out during the show. We shall see how it goes...

How extraordinary this is. I mean that--this just fills my eyes, which is the greatest compliment I can give.

This is just amazing.
