Last collage for my mixed media class
(you guys don't get to see the second, cause i hate it so much. I don't like having to add random found materials into my artwork.)
This was done with cardboard cutouts and acrylic paint. It was actually a lot of fun.
Hence why the edges of the beak and feathers on the head are harsh.
They aren't painted they are cut xD
And i got a nosebleed doing this so theres actually some of my blood in it.
Woops.

Small image, taken with my cell phone.
I'll update with a bigger scanned one soon.

So, what makes a hipster?

Random collage I did with just a red 0.5mm pen on some paper. Took like 2 hours of randomness.

The monster demands a mate...BY MAIL!

P.S.Please ignore the lack of spaces in the title. It was the only way to fit every last morsel of words.

I've been experimenting with 'photo transfers' a fair bit recently. I was impressed by results seen on youTube (e.g. photo transfer to wood) and decided to give it a go myself.
The principle is actually quite simple: you transfer the toner particles from a regular printout with matt medium (acrylic paint) onto the surface of your preferred medium.
I chose plywood and acrylics/matt medium since I have heaps of that stuff around for my stencil works anyways. here's what I did in more detail:

1.) choose your digital image and mirror it (flip horizontal)

2.) print with laser printer or photo copy that uses toner (ink does not work!) on regular printer paper

3.) prep your canvas (2 layers of acrylics will do) and sand it to smoothen surface

4.) apply even layer of matt medium across your canvas and press paper printout onto canvas surface. be quick and flatten printout from the middle to the outside using your hands/brush/spatula to remove airbubbles

5.) let canvas and paper dry (overnight is good!)

6.) sprinkle water on paper, let it soak for a bit and carefully start rubbing of the paper

7.) you'll have to repeat step 6 for a few times until most of the fibres are removed

8.) i then touch up the transferred image with my airbrush and add texture like drops and sprinkles to it...

there you go, guys!! quite simple and there's heaps of info/tips/tutorials out there on the net if you decide to try for yourself...it's no magic but requires some practice to fine-tune amounts of paint and not rubbing off the transferred image!

ENJOY Spin

Here is a Cabinet of Curiosities I made and have up for display & purchase at Horrorbles in Berwyn, IL
This took much time and many many objecs, some fascinating, some dull and ordinary, but put together make quite a collection!
The base for the piece is a vintage printers type tray.
