Old Magazines

5_collage_A_top

Hadn’t broken away from the computer in a while, so I pulled out an old magazine, shredded a few pieces, cut a few pieces, and glued it all down. Of course it comes back in to the computer and gets tweaked up a bit. Just a bit though. Sometimes a quick (and otherwise pointless) side project is the perfect fix.

Featured: Maximus Balder

Mixed-media art from Maximus Balder. Picardie, France – found on the Gestalten Blackboard. Really cool layered artwork weaving in typography, commercial/design stuff… all found-imagery, as far as I can tell, and the resulting compositions have a rich design&type-infused feel to them.

Site and info is here.
