Anyways, Last summer I did a collage piece that I think turned out nicely. I wish I had pictures of the finished project because after the stage that you see it in here I had added a beautiful crackling varnish to it in a nice crimson color that really made the whole piece pop. The piece is constructed with Textured paper, coffee stains, an image transfers of some bugs I had drawn, and a fly block print that I carved and stamped. There is also a little watercolor thrown in. I'm going to try and get a nice scan of the varnish stage on here soon because I think that's what really made the piece come together.

Maybe I'll get a few nice pieces out of this class, If anything it will be a fun class to take while I'm busting my ass in portfolio. Also, "Milly Tat and Her Cat", The children s book I just did for my book illustration class is finished. I chose to make it a Mock book due to time. I was trying to finish it while I was in two other studio classes and it just wasn't going to happen. So, we had the choice of just coloring the 3 double page spreads and working the other pages up to a finished sketch or inked page. The mock book is kind of a book I can send out that shows the possibilities of a finished children s book from me. I'll try and get a link up to it this week so you can preview it.
Until next time,
