Week 6 of 100 Collages

Life has been really wild lately. I thought quarantine was something but then everything else happened. I want to write some essays on it but I’ve been struggling to put it all together. I wrote a post for The Paradigm Press about ways to help the Black Lives Matter Movement so check it out if you’re interested.

Even though I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve actually stayed consistent with the challenge. I’ll be posting all the updates this week. Here’s week 6!

Day 36

Collage Art Marsai Martin

Not the best picture but the lighting outside was really bright when I was taking these. I went super simple for this one, bringing all the focus to Marsai Martin and just accenting that central image.

Day 37

Collage Art Diverse girl group

This was a fun one. I love the energy these girls are giving off in the picture.

Day 38

Collage Art Handsome Black Man

This man is sooo fine! I’m pretty sure this came out of a Vogue magazine.

Day 39

Collage Art Fashion and Nature

Another fun one. If you can’t tell by now, I’m super into nature.

Day 40

Collage Art Janelle Monae

I wanted to experiment with size and depth for this one and I love how it came out.

Day 41

Collage Art Black Woman

I love the accents for this one.

Day 42

Collage Art Black Model

More experimentation.

These are from nearly three weeks ago! It’s kind of weird looking back on these and realizing just how much my style has evolved. I love seeing the growth in these pieces.

Which one is your favorite?

How was your week?
