Excuse my usual poor photography...but....
These are the two collages i did for KUNSTKRAFT.
The top one is about 50cm long and the other around 30cm.
They're made of colored paper and are replicas of existing wall pieces. I spent 4 days with scalpel in hand, and it turned out to be a fun process as the pieces started to come together.
Check out some of the other peeps work in the auction at the link on the blog entry below.

A little information on the creation of this special mural and print release from MYLA:
"We all spoke about doing a collaboration character wall and when you guys offered up your new studio for a spot for us to paint it, we
went there with a loose idea of how we wanted the wall to feel and how we will lay it out. We started painting in the morning and kept going till we all felt that it was finished...each of us adding bits and pieces till it was done. We were all so happy with how the wall came out we sat down to work on making a print of it!" Myla

I don't mind this one, ...i think. The basic shape of the n and w i had on paper. As usual, i had to wing it for the rest. It keeps painting somewhere between interesting and unnecessarily indecisive for me, always uncertain, and an often incomplete feeling about the results. Having said that, it makes me go and do another!
I like some of the pieces to grow a little toward the right, like my tags do.
