I’ve taught workshops for children and adults on how to make illustrated collage books from hand-painted papers. The stories were invented from the process.Here is one I worked on in Sitka, AK with students at the library. Click on the image below to see the whole book.
I also used this collage technique of hand-painted watercolor papers to illustrate a book called Northern Lights A-Z.My latest art project is making Crankies with fabric using a collage technique. Here is a section from the Farewell Angelina Crankie. Please check back for Crankie videos –coming soon!
Meanwhile, the gears are turning…I’m thinking about what it might be like to illustrate a book using fabric!
