We make collages in design school. This week’s assignment was to tear a picture out of a magazine and then recreate it using colours we find in magazines. Valentino and John Galliano are both hacked up in there, amongst everything from a bit of a lion’s mane to ocean waves. I spent a LOT of time layering lots of tiny bits of paper onto the blank space beside the original image… and I finally threw upmy hands at 1pm this afternoon. I could spend a year on it and not feel done. So many colour variations to capture. It was a great exercise for colour recognition.
I knew it was time to move on when I finished putting 6 different pepper-grind sized pieces of paper together to do Alice’s lips.
I have lost my mind. And I am loving it.
