Today I just worked on preparing black backgrounds for future collages.
Airy's mom joined us and she completed this collage.

On the way home, came across this rad mural.
Today I just worked on organizing my collage materials and making black backgrounds, while Mark was on fire.
Mark's best collage yet.

Today we met at Atlas Cafe and had to be almost thrown out because we went so overtime. Sorry pics are so blurry.
My collage for the day
Mark's collage made from my scraps.
My friend and I screwed around making paper after visiting the museum. It was really fun and I'm excited to try integrating spices into the paper.
I've been feeling especially down the last few days and glad I forced myself to attend the collage group.
I sorted a bunch of source materials today.

I spent the session sorting though magazines and starting a new collage.

Today I sorted many pages that I've torn from two Restoration Hardware Catalogs. I also organized my reject pieces.
Joe's cut pieces
Mark used my scraps from my collage and in the end, he turned it over and decided he liked the back better!
I'm excited to coordinate this group for there are some really amazing artists involved.
I spent the entire day, ripping and organizing pages from Restoration Hardware catalogs. I now have tons more collage materials. After adding these to my previous collection, I have two whole plastic bins full.
As I was tearing out pages, I ended up with thick bundles from the spines of the magazines. My artist friend Mark took them home and incorporated them into a collage.
I started a new collage, but having a tough time placing some of the pieces together. This resulted in a bunch of separate pieces that I'll eventually use.
Today it was Joe and I, which was nice to have a smaller group for once.
Today I cut out a few items from anatomical books. I already like what I'm starting with.
The first picture is a work in progress by Airy. She asked my opinion, so afterwards, I went home and played around with Photoshop to show possibilities.
My proposal is formally sound, but lacks excitement.
Another day of collaging.
