summertime creatures



i finally finished my cards for monstertown's summertime creatures postcard swap. my creatures are summertime goats. i like goats, with their horizontal pupils. anyhow, here are all 25 of them together. they look suspiciously like a quilt...

i may put up a slideshow of the cards later. i had planned to just do a drawing and photocopy it, but then i thought i should try something different for me - collage. haven't done a collage since elementary school. it was quite time consuming, but the cutting and pasting was soothing. i used pieces of a brochure/map of stockholm (i figured a lot of my summertime memories are of Sweden) and a deck of angel cards. it's funny how there were connections between the photos in the brochure, streets/parks in stockholm and the angel words. i guess that's what happens in collage, random connections.
