The staring match: Letter vs Stamps

The All Seeing Pardonram


Hello everyone. As this is my first posting to The Kollage Kit I should probably introduce myself. Some of you will know me from Scrapiteria and Flickr. My name is Adriana Müller. I live in Sydney, Australia with my hubby and two labradoodles. I have been making collages since 2000. I'm especially fond of medical and scientific imagery with some kids' stuff thrown in. I like my collages to tell a story, which sometimes isn't obvious to anyone else. I also do other stuff to amuse myself such as photography, sewing and collecting old photos, antique bottles and spooky broken dolls.

Theme of the Week - Postage

All manner of postal curios required - fake stamps, phoney postmen, flakey post people, first day covers etc. etc. HaVE FUN!

Lost In Translation

Another old collage from the vaults, next one all original and new...promise.

A Blue Hat For a Blue Day

My name is Big Al Davies, I've kindly been allowed to join here despite the fact that I haven't done a collage for a while. Thanks to Michael, I have promised to do some new work on the next subject. I am from South Wales in the UK, I work in an office for my sins, but record music and videos in the evenings and weekends. I've released two albums called Feztastic and the Ploughman's Lunch and I'm currently finishing the third called 'The Landlord's Curious Daughter" (no cover as yet...hint hint). I'm married and I have an alter ego called Trevor Evans who records songs that are well known that Trevor believes has written, I'm also making a longer online film of Trevor with lots of other people also involved in talking about his life and work. I loved my collage days that were started on flickr and I'm coming home guys and gals!

Ass Hat

Ass Hat

Marty Gordon draws on a diverse artistic background that includes writing, theater, and printmaking to make his clever collages. A former minister, Gordon now devotes his spare time to collage making. Blending sophisticated humor with a comic visual style, he has developed his own unique genre of collage. Gordon lives in Seattle, Washington, with his wife, Sarah, who is also an artist and costume designer. He has exhibited his art nationally and internationally and is one of 40 artists featured in the recent publication Masters: Collage. You can see more of his work at his website: www.whatwouldjesusglue.com.

Forgive the professional bio. I just didn't have it in me to write something cute and clever.

Ron Bookless (Monocassette)

Hello. Born in 1960 in Glasgow, Scotland. Studied and worked in graphic design from the 1980s. Inspired into creating collages through Pop Art and the arrival of Punk's D.I.Y. ethic. Also influenced by the use of collage in the hilarious work of animators such as Bob Godfrey and Terry Gilliam.
For the last five years I have posted artwork online via Flickr meeting a fine bunch of artistic and musically minded friends along the way.

Another About Me

Lynn Skordal (aka paperworker)

I was born last century in a small village on the west coast of Iceland (or maybe it was the south of France, I forget…), but was soon abducted by an itinerant band of corporate lawyers who raised me on principles of res judicata.  Not knowing any better, I practiced law for many years, foreclosing on a daycare center the week before Christmas, staring down the Posse Comitatus over bogus bank accounts, and drafting the constitutional governing document for a small Polynesian nation (one of those is actually not true).  Four or five years ago I left the law and began making art.  Usually, I have no idea what I’m doing.

About Me

Marty suggested it might be nice that we all introduce ourselves and so if contributors could write a short biog. and add it like I'm doing now that would be great!

Michael Leigh (wastedpapiers, Kollage Kid, A1)

I was born in 1947 and went to several art schools including Southend, Manchester and Chelsea where I gained my post graduate degree in painting in 1971. I didn't discover my true love for collage really until 1980 when I joined the international mail art network and started making small books, postcards, 'zines etc. and realised what great fun collage could be. Inspired by such people as Schwitters, Ernst, Hannah Hoch, Peter Blake, Richard Hamilton etc. I rarely exhibit but much prefer to send my work through the post and exchange it and now with the growth of the internet I share it on blogs such as this one.

Here is one of my many blogs. You can find the rest by clicking on my name on the Contributors list at the bottom of the page.

veal head trajectory

The Petri's Christmas seemed almost perfect as they glided from one nebulas cloud to the next. "Did you bring the cashews," she asked? "No," he said.

Theme of the Week - Hats & Headgear


Toppers, bowlers, derbys, straw boaters , wool balaclava's, cloth caps, Easter bonnets and all manner of weird and wonderful head ornament. Have fun!

Introduction

Welcome to my new collage blog ( as if I didn't have enough already!) which I hope will fill the gap from where Scrapiteria left off. Hopefully I can figure out how to invite other clever collage makers to take part.  I will start by choosing themes and if all goes well we can take turns in choosing them so one person doesn't have the task every week.
