Yet another example of one of my drawings combined with collage. I can’t get a decent scan of this, but you will get some idea from it. By the way, I did all the pen and ink work in the background too.
i really love this style! you should do some more of these…they are soooooo good! Just wonderful!
I have just altered the contrast and brilliance in this … can you see it better now?
yes…you really are fantastic at this style of work dave! really fantastic….i dont think u realize how good these are! You should propose all of these collage works for an exhibit somewhere!
I tend to imagine that most art-lovers will view these as an old man playing with glue and paper to keep him out of mischief. It’s only when a real artist such as yourself sees something worthwhile in them that I stop to consider whether maybe they ARE worth showing to people. I still have more I haven’t uploaded to Redbubble.
you really need to treasure these…i think these are your true “Key” to fame….they are soooo original, uniques, well composed, damn it Dave!!! I wish I lived close by to you , i would be calling newspapers, news channels, etc and finding an interview for you about this work!!!! they are f*****g FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!! Dave!!!! you need to exhibit these, try and get some press reviews on these works ….. i’m tellin ya! i’m gonna need ur autograph soon!! :-)
I hope everyone realises that these are only A4 size (21.0cm × 29.7cm) and done with pieces of paper I tore from magazines. Maybe I should do some larger ones. As Woodie of Redbubble mentioned, they are often done as exercises in art schools (not that I ever went to an art school). I tend to think of them as just bits of magazine paper stuck together and outlined with biro or Rotring Isograph pen :) Many people won’t even recognise this as serious art. I understand that if collage is incorporated with acrylic though, it becomes “ART” … I might try that one day.
I have a friend who produces the local BBC TV news and he has expressed no desire whatsoever to publicise my work in any way, despite me gently dropping hints. The local newspaper, however, did a little spread about my recent exhibition.
Having said all that though, I might be getting a little swollen headed soon over your lovely compliments :) I have Bubblemailed you by the way.
You encourage me to keep on keeping on :)
THIS IS SERIOUS ART…..love it, your work is so diverse Dave, and this is just one more facet to your amazing talent, and I would love to see you do more in this style.
Oh, this is fantastic. This is the Emerald Faerie tiptoeing amongst the sun-kissed Autumnal leaves!
Lovely style.I admire your work.
