Revolver


Another title I found was "Revolver".
Many collagists made a gun, shooting flowers - and here is mine.

Carry that weight


I´m not a big Beatles fan and I do not know many songs - 
so I just googled the list of all songs from A - Z and found "Carry that weight" and made this collage. Now I see that Michael already did a collage for that title, too - but .... here is my interpretation. 

HEY BULLDOG!


Pop Go The Beatles

Theme of a radio show the boys did for the BBC called "Pop Go The Beatles" which some snippets of can be found on YouTube - especially a series called the "Beebs Lost Beatles Tapes".

Carry That Weight

Another from the archive. Hopefully will find time to make a new collage soon.

Mr. Moonlight


A day in the life ....


I read the news today, oh boy
four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire

Looks a bit like the one last week .. before glueing I played with the elements and made some pictures ...
I thought this one fits the last couplet of the lyrics
(getting a bit nostalgic listening to old Beatles songs ;))

A mysterious page


Here you see my little kid brother who's about to uncover what lies beneath this mysterious page that seems to scare the rest of my family ... well except for my mother and my brother and me;))

What Lay Beneath


I really have a big chaos on my desk - and when I put the top of the bunch away I found a started collage - it lay beneath -and so I finished it for our this week´s theme.

Product Placement

Always looking great in a 'Rorschach' dress!


I've been making a lot of 'rorschach' inkblots lately and a lot of them look like dresses to me ... so I made this advertisement out of one of them.

Who Doesn't Love Jello?

All the text comes from a deconstructed Maxfield Parrish advertisment, circa 1922. Torso and feet are a costume by Benois for the ballet Petroucka. Jello skirt courtesy of a vintage 1950s magazine advertisement. Pasted down on an end paper from a book.

An answer to the problem of underweight


Dear friends - I´m back from my summer brake, from my trip to China, back to KK.
This is not one of my best collages - I know  - but I wanted to set a sign that I am in again.

4 for £99

THEME: Advertisement

Have you ever been flipping through a magazine, looking at advertisements, and thought, "Hey—I could do better than that!" Well, this is your chance: create an advertisenent—real or fictional, small or large, any language, it's up to you. Have fun!

strange sunset

From my archives.

THEME: Three pieces of paper

This week I'm going for "less is more." Any theme, any subject, but no more than three pieces of paper. An all-white or an all-black background doesn't count as a piece of paper, but any other background does. Have fun!

She's Leaving Home

I have always loved the Beatle's song "She's Leaving Home". The doll who appears to be doing the same has been cut out for some time and I decided now was the time to paste her down. I have always loved the artist Ralph Blakelock. The background is an oil on canvas, circa 1885, entitled "The Three Trees". Lastly I felt the collage needed more than the doll and the painting so I pasted them all down on the cover of a brochure I picked up. What you see is a portion of the Société Anonyme Signboard, no date, paint on panel, artist unknown.

Marie Toilette's live performance of her 'Apple-tree Dance' ..


Unfortunately Marie couldn't find the right apples so she improvised with balls of wool, but due to her very expressive dancing style these almost got her strangled.
Luckily for us she turned back to knitting warm undergarment again ;))
