this series is inspired by the work of american collage artist raymond saá.
i gave a sneak peak of this new series of collages on instagram a little while ago. and, wow, people loved it. it is so easy to do: paint some pages in a gradient of saturation, cut them into little strips or squares, and glue them in shingled rows to a stiff watercolor paper. if that sounds too irksome, i will have these for sale eventually.
dawn of a new era: introducing STILL “dawn”
for calendar year 2017, i have accepted a personal challenge of making one collage a day. to keep myself honest, but also keep the project fun, i have formalized my collage-a-day challenge with a set of rules specific enough to help me focus, but loose enough to allow me to play. here are the rules I have put in place: make 1 collage per day for 1 year, pick 1 style each week and make 7 variations, share the best 6 each week on social media, revisit earlier styles only if there is a new twist.
i hope you check back here regularly. i will be adding six new collages a week for the rest of 2017.
