Hi. Jane Davies here. I got so inspired by Kelli Nina Perkins' article in our new Sketchbook Challenge E-zine, I made this collage with text. Even though I do use text in some of my collages, and am teaching an online class called "Text and Image: Telling Stories in Collage", Kelli's take on it was so different from my usual way of working, it really expanded my horizons.
I started with a sketch I did about a year ago of a hotel room desk chair:
Then I placed text in and around the drawing, choosing some words to be legible, and other text as background texture:
I applied some acrylic paint, obscuring some text, and giving the piece a more picture-like aspect.
Kelli shows several ways of incorporating text collage into a drawing in her E-zine article. Hers is only one of the many technique-filled how-to's from our Sketchbook Challenge hosts! Take a look inside.
