Grandfather and Grandson

Grandfather and Grandson by collage artist Megan Coyle

"Grandfather and Grandson"
Collage on paper
9"x12"

Here's one of the holiday commissions I completed a couple months ago. My client wanted me to make a collage of her friend with his grandson. Since this piece wasn't the smallest size I work in, it wasn't as difficult to collage two figures on the 9"x12" area. However, since 9"x12" is still somewhat small, it was a bit of a challenge to get the likeness down properly for the grandson. I did have a bit of fun collaging all those colorful badges on the grandfather's jacket.

I have a few more collages that I completed this year that I'll post in the next couple of weeks. Anyway, I hope everyone is having a great December!
