FAQ on Art
What is 'paper collage'?
A. Paper collage is a term I use to describe my mistake process. I work in pen, so when I make a mistake I can’t erase it. To ‘fix’ the mistake, I trace over my error with tracing paper, then I transfer the shape of the area I've traced onto a fresh piece of paper. I then re-draw the image or design I want to capture on the fresh sheet of paper, cut it out, and glue it on top of the existing drawing. This process gives a layered look to many of my originals. I use this process as a way to salvage my work, otherwise I’d have to throw away days, weeks, and sometimes even a few months worth of effort.
A lot of your pictures say: NFS. What does that mean?
A. It means "Not For Sale".
Is your artwork computer generated?
