Celebrating Black History Month with a collage I created to honor some of the great African American musicians of the 1900s. I used old photographs, old magazines, and paper textures to create this. It is inspired by the work of Romare Beardon.
I must say, I just love making collages. Rearranging pieces, playing with scale, refining silhouettes, creating implied direction lines, and discovering interesting negative shapes is just fun! I am no Romare Beardon, but I hope to get more opportunities to create collages. I am sure it will refine my sense of composition.
Happy Black History Month everyone!
