Craftsmanship Ox was created while Spam Tales: Craftsmanship Ox, Erasmus Howard was a work in progress. I liked this collage so much I felt it was worthy of, and effective in, another composition and well suited to Avant Card's post card format. It's the most complicated, non-texture* collage I have done to date in terms of the number of actual pieces that are assembled and layered (twenty two parts), as well as the number of original image sources used (five different books).


Exhibited as part of Paper Butterflies.

* Examples here and here.

I collect a few postcards myself and most of mine are Avant CArd freebies too.

Thank you :)
