In this segment of ZineWriMo, we will be discussing collages.
I like collages. Unless my glue runs out – then I like my local office supplies store where I can purchase more glue to make more collages.
Collages rule because they usually don’t involve much concentration needed mostly when I engage in the written art form.
They also rule because they don’t give me a headache like drawings do. I suck at drawing. I said that already, didn’t I? So whenever I try to draw, I get a headache, and fail miserably, and get angry as a result. But collages don’t involve any drawing. I just print out a bunch of awesome pics and put them together however they fit. It’s like a puzzle, only it rules harder.
So today, I made a collage for my metal zine. I printed out a bunch of photos and logos of bands I like, put them together in no particular pattern (as in, the logo doesn’t necessarily fit with the picture of the band it’s stuck on) and sprinkled a bunch of little metal horns all over. I’ll have to place it in the middle of the zine as it’s spread over two pages. It’s officially the biggest and most elaborate collage I’ve made in an A6-size zine (1/4 page size).
I love the way it looks, just as badass as I intended it to be.
I won’t post a picture of it here because I rather unveil it along with the completed zine.
Peace, love and paper art is totally where it’s at
