Handling & Sausage Making

Thank you for joining the millions of Americans collecting these collages. A few things to know when you get yours.

  1. Keep turning it around until you find just the composition you like.
  2. There is a velcro strip more or less centered on the back. Handy for experimenting with hanging or framing.
  3. They are a little fragile and have been coated with a matte finish. This insouciance is part of the charm, non?

Sausage Making

  1. I do them around 6 am, Monday through Friday in dim light.
  2. I give myself 15 minutes to complete it.
  3. All the source materials are from the Sunday New York Times and wallpaper scraps and samples from my friend, a master hanger.
  4. Some days I limit myself to 3 or 4 pieces of materials.
  5. Some days I draw on them.
  6. I do my best to ensure that no source image is recognizable for what it actually is.

My friend Rick is a master wallpaper hanger and aficionado. He gives me scraps to use in my collages.

In this latest batch, I’m working fast to grease the composition and color wheels. I make one first thing in the morning before the day begins. Additional elements are cut from magazines. I’m experimenting with a few constraints. They are all roughly 6″ squares, in some I only allowed 3 additional pieces to be added. As I progressed I’d add some drawn elements before layering on the magazine pieces.

Inspired by these folks on Instagram Austin KleonMichael DeSutter, Elise Margolis, Robert Hardgrave, Andy Burgess, and Paul Inglis.
