hi everyone! i made this collage a few months ago when one of my favorite bands (Jack's Mannequin) had a call for entries for a music video of theirs called "Swim." so i made this collage in about 24 hours (during about 3 days) & sent it in, and it made it into the video! i was really stoked about this, but i'm REALLY sad that the record label kept it, because i totally want it on my wall!

the background is paper shopping bags - the darker ones i stained with coffee grounds. the swallow & text are made from scrapbook paper


from "the making of 'swim'" that's andrew mcmahon (lead singer) in between his parents!


& here it is in the actual video


and you can see the video here if you'd like, my collage is in it 3 times i believe, and the lead singer's mom holds it! pretty effin cool

I love the way you collaged the sparrow.
youre so lucky to have had his mum hold yours

I think the song is about his battle with cancer or something to that effect I love your use of the bird and the symbolism between that and "swim"

thanks! i wasn't sure if people would be confused by the symbolism of the swallow and the word swim, but the first thing i thought of to symbolize that song was a swallow, since it means hope and whatever.
