Wow, what a year this has been! I started collaging in April, and I haven’t been able to stop since. You got to know me as a collage artist, so for you it’s easy to imagine the artist’s zeal. But for those who know me personally, this was a surprising, major shift from “doing nothing, all day long”, to “doing collages, all night long”, like a maniac.
The thing started taking off around end of July, when the TumblR Radar featured my “Naive Honeymooners” collage (thank you guys!). Since then it’s been quite a nice, steady ride: a few magazine editorial work and/or commissions (UTNE Reader, among them), and interviews on both online and printed culture magazines (e.g. Curve, and in print). I’m still contemplating if I should apply for work at an illustration agency, or if I should just keep doing collages for fun.
I’d have to mention once more that the vast majority of my collages are available in their full resolution at my FlickR, so if you own a photo printer and some photo paper, you can print them yourself at home. Quality will be almost the same as what you get from my online store. It would only cost you anywhere between $1 and $3 to print at home (depending on paper quality, size). If you guys like any of my Creative Commons doodles, please go ahead and print!
So, anyway, in the photoset above it’s my personal best-of for 2012. Next Year’s Resolution is to learn how to use Adobe Illustrator better, since I’d like to incorporate some complex geometrical objects to my artworks, I’d like to evolve more… I will also play around with watercolor paintings (I bought all the supplies, now I just need to learn it). And at some point, I will finish that short-story movie I wanted to do using my collages…
