Megan Coyle writes in: “I made this mini collage entirely from magazine pages. All of my work focuses on creating representational work from recycled magazines, and I usually focus on portraits of people. When Obama was running for president, I was inspired to create a series of portraits of such a historical political figure. “Blue Barack Obama” is 7″x5″, and the work of art is part of a series of small collages. By working on a smaller scale, I was challenged to cut the right shapes of paper to get a good likeness of Obama.”
Karin Bruckner sent over a great mixed-media work: “Monotype Print made with Akua Kolor and Intalgio waterbased inks on Hahnemuehle monoprint paper and printed on an etching press. Sales tages were used for printing, embossing and collaging. Embossing highlighted with pencil drawing. Obama image added by ink transfer. Letters and numbers stencilled with ink. Meant to memorialize a momentous election.”
