so i made a ton of postcards with the aid of several old oprah magazines (and a vogue or two) and i thought you might like to see!





































that is a lot of pictures! maybe not a billion as i previously claimed, but a little exaggeration is no big deal. collages are awesome and i might make some more postcards pretty soon because it is so much fun. (and i have new magazines!) also you can't see but they have an awesome postcard stamp on the back as well.

I like these a lot! I think I like the "your name here' beach one the best.  I also think you're spying on me... I just uploaded a ton of pics of postcards I've made!  When I get around to posting them, we can compare! Smiley

ooh, twins! thanks! that one was neat to make because the "your name here" part actually came from a completely different ad. it just conveniently matched perfectly!

Wow those are unbelievable!!!!!  I go through old mags all the time to find stuff but I never imagine putting things together the way you did!  They all look so great!  Just the inspiration I needed to pull out the magazines and get-a-snippin!

thanks everyone! i just made a ton more yesterday/today:







this one and all the others with similar background come from my notes on ts eliot's the waste land. i took some crazy intense notes and thus have been keeping them all summer for potential art projects.



and this background is from a map of the london underground i've mysteriously been keeping around since 2006...































and in case you are curious, here is the stamp on the back:
