Ever since I saw Teesha Moore's video's, I've been fascinated by collage. I spent days looking through magazines, cutting out pictures, trying out heads on different bodies and plastering it all in my journal.
But somehow, I never got the hang of it. All my trials looked like very bad imitations of Teesha Moore. I felt like it wasn't me, no matter how much I liked the fierce colours and the strange creatures. I didn't know how far I could go with magazine pictures. When was I infringing copyright? What if I happened to make something that I really liked and wanted to make prints of it, would I be in trouble? Probably way too much overthinking, but, well, the end result was that I just put all my clippings and cutouts in a box and forgot about it.
Except it kept popping up in my head every now and then. So a few days ago, I decided to start printing out my own artwork and cutting out heads and bodyparts. No worries about copyright, and it was fun using my art in different ways and making new things out of it.
Here's my first tryout:
While waiting for my daughter to finish dance-class I finished another doodle. Yes, I am now grabbing every little bit of time I can get to do some art :-)
That's it for now, high time I went to bed.
Thanks so much for visiting, I'll be back on Wednesday with my 4th Etsy-promotion. Does this mean that May is almost over? Aaarrggghhh ........
