I’ve always been intrigued by its possibilities, mainly because I love collage. My approach to it involves creating some of the imagery by hand through drawing or painting, and integrating that with photographic elements. Hopefully that gives the work a softer, less technical feel.
Once I had all the elements I needed to work with, these two illustrations took about an hour each on the computer. They are my first tentative exploration of digital collage. I don’t foresee this replacing my totally hand-done work, but it was an interesting experiment that I may pursue on the side. These images were done for a folio that was created to accompany a show at Gallery Della-Piana
in Wenham, MA on the theme of trees. I also had a painting in the show.
