"Pink Coffee Cup"
Collage on mat board (coated paper)
Since I have focused a lot of time on my children's book illustrations, I've decided to strive to complete a couple small collages every week. That way I can break up my illustration work a bit and continue to explore other subjects and compositions. The piece above is something I completed last night. Instead of working with magazine strips like I usually do, I used coated paper. The paper was pretty thick which forced me to work with fewer strips and it simplified the look of the finished piece. This exercise reminds me that I should start thinking about projects for the workshop I'm running in April. I know that April seems a ways away, although it will get here before I know it...
