This is a small presentation of me working in my studio and making various collage artworks.

I am working with analogue collage (handcut) and my tools are cutting knife for straight cuts and detail ( the medical type is the sharpest and cheaper to use) scissors for round cuts, black markers for outline and and correcting mistakes and UHU stick glue for a clean finish.

I am finding my images through net search, trying to find high resolution photos but always with respect for other people artwork. I then cut everything and spend a lot of time arranging and rearranging everthing. This is the best part for me:) everything is in motion and the compinations can surpise you. The last part is pasting everything on black hardboard and its finished.

Very nice 'behind the scenes' post!

I guess the only 'expensive' part of the procedure is printing all those images that you cut. And time, of course.

And Crux has some good pics!
