Collage, 5" x 7"


  1. no, the wet-looking wrinkles are really not that disturbing to me. They have the potential to disturb me in a profound way; if any of the corners were to break free and sort of flap around, I would become quite upset.
    I was going to say something about Charles Crumb and his obsession with wrinkles and how that obsession took over his work. But really that is all quite unrelated and, though a fascinating world -- the universe of the Crumb family and that great movie -- , irrelevant.
    Where is everyone? I want to hear what the real commenters have to say.

  2. Oolala. Is that tissue paper? I love tissue paper. Love the colors going on here. [sigh] Mmm... You make me wanna drag my artsy-fartsy boxes outta all my stashed crap disoriented by the sealing off of the mold room crap. I have nowhere to work (small folding table) but you make me wanna go through the effort.

  3. Wow. I'd love to see what you'd make. Yes, it is tissue paper, the kind you use for wrapping, not Kleenex. But, early on, when I first first started these, I did some with actual tissues. It had a beautiful effect. Alas, the total lack of durability was a problem; you could hardly touch them. If you go way back to the beginning of this blog, you will see some with pink circles and a gauzy something on top, those are the ones. I was just looking at one today in life at the studio.
