This collage is for my good friend Brandon for his birthday! The little people are from a 1960s health book I found at Goodwill, though I've drawn quite a bit over them to resemble Brandon, myself, and our friend Brad.  Most of the text is from that book also (the best 2.50 I've ever spent in my life, I think). 

comments appreciated  Cheesy

hey that's wicked Cheesy wish I could actually read everything, don't know if it's the clarity of the pic or the fuzziness of my eyes generally. I have a stack of stuff like that ready for collaging but have failed so far to make anything out of it... :| maybe soon. but I'd be angsty about cutting up the original books, especially the more psychedelic sixties kids' books I have (including stories about "spray for a friend", the spray can that allows you to make inanimate objects your friends) ... might have to scan or photocopy.

hope you're feeling well anyway, and that your friend really likes his present (he ought to!).

speak to you soon.
