This week in art

This week, I am working on Robin Mead’s cool online class, Crazy Colorful Cityscapes.

In this cityscape collage, the buildings are cut from a variety of painted papers.

Although the course uses traditional methods, I had to try my hand at doing a digital cityscape.

In this week’s lesson, we are using stamps to create our buildings. Here is a collection of my handmade stamps. I had a good collection already, and I carved some new ones this week.
