I don’t even remember how I found Hello, Fig. I haven’t been receiving the daily emails for very long, but I truly enjoy opening each one to see his work. As I’ve pointed out before, I know almost nothing about collage art, and never would call myself a collage artist. Mail artist, yeah, but that sounds a lot less formal and a lot more like “anything goes.”
When I saw Wanderlust, I was reminded of one of my own, which I also sent as a postcard to my daughter when she was away at school. It’s much more complicated, though, and probably has too much in it. At least, that’s how it looks to me a year later.
I made this using an old school atlas and some cut-outs from old sheet music.
Here’s another one from Hello, Fig that makes me want to try this technique:
“Will and Grace”
Aren’t these entertaining? Here’s a link to his site:
Take a look, I think you’ll enjoy it.
