For a little over a year I’ve been adding a weekly spread to this ginormous sketchbook.
Because of the ginormity of this book (600 pages!) it’s going to span the course of a few years to come, and I’m excited about that. To see what appears in these pages is as much of a surprise to me as it is anyone else.
We’ve all agreed that time isn’t real, right? because I’m fully embracing that in my reality now.
All that to say, World Collage Day was in May. I posted some photos of my collages in June, I’m writing this in JulyAugust, and you could be reading it any time after I hit publish 😉
In my world, I’m somewhere in Collage Season.
Step one: make space on the floor, spread out all the bits so see what you have to play with.
Starting out with a bundle of collage images – mostly cut out from magazines and book pages + a few abstract patterned papers – kindly supplied by the Arizona Collage Collective + some from my own collection, I began with some swapping of heads.
Gradually these newly imagined characters formed together in groups, in turn finding their home in the pages of my Book of Days
I’ll be posting a flip through of the latest pages in this book where you can see this, and the rest of the collages. For an exclusive preview you’ll need to get my next newsletter.
