Collage Animals 2

There were so many animals that I didn’t realize existed. Others I never fully apreciated. I suppose the same can be said about each one of us. We all have something that makes us beautiful. Which reminds me of an interesting National Geographic article. It was about why we’re so afraid of snakes. It was about King Cobras being shy. I’ve yet to finish the article but wow I’m speechless.

So we judge, criticize and undervalue each other? it’s certainly something to think about.

By the way book creating is complicated. It’s all in the details and editing. My Live Your Love Story paperback came in the mail yesterday and all of my illustrations are in black. Not what I planned but I think I like it. You can see the book on instagram @hellomireya Let me know what you think.

Eric Carle Collage

…there’s a book inspired by Eric Carle’s collage technique and many MANY watercolor beautiful messes …

There comes a time in every project when you realize it’s time to alter coarse. I wanted to make good use of these messes but it’s hard scanning 140Ib paper.

I said goodbye and recylced most of the lovely textures. It felt weird. And then it hit me. I can keep use some pieces to test ideas. I’ve been seeing lots of collage work these days and today I had to try.

…inspired by a movie quote about making the impossible possible.

This one is inspired by long lazy days writing and sketching. It didn’t work out but I don’t care. I had fun.

Ahh… I long for those days again. The days of me and my Roxy. The summer days will soon be here.

I’ll do much better with thinner paper. Thinner paper will help me layer and scan easier.

I just remembered this Elmer’s liquid glue I saw at Target. It’s Wise Trees all over again!
