collaging

I finally set aside some time to make wall art for my new apartment! I’m really into the whole “new art / new start” (I just made that up omg POET) idea and I wanted to make some new pretty stuff to go along with the upcoming change of scenery. I move next week and while I haven’t thought about it all that much, I’m really excited to be going back to school/Nashville. I cut out these scraps from a random Globe issue about a month ago, but it doesn’t really matter what you use. Just cardboard and puffy paint and IMAGINATION.

the paint I used was quite bright but it was sort of muted by the cardboard backing, which I actually ended up liking a lot better.

this seems really angsty and sad in retrospect, but I just thought it was cute??

moment of truth = my cat deciding whether or not to step on the cardboard before it dried. very suspenseful

post-glue post-modern

“the past is a grotesque animal” (which, to me, is more humorous than dramatic)

“standing tall among prospects” (aka I could write an essay about the underlying personal meaning of this random headline intended for exceptional high school basketball players)

“don’t try this at home” (except do. and show me, because there is a 99.99999% chance you are more artistically talented than me) alternate title “nice try, Ohio!!!!”
