Post #1177 – Young Wonder “Sweet Dreaming”

Young Wonder Sweet Dreaming cover

Here is the fourth and final collage (above) I put together for Irish electro-pop duo Young Wonder – it is for Sweet Dreaming, the third single from their upcoming full length album Birth.  When I originally submitted the artwork to the band, I had a reddish background behind the collage (pictured below) but when the single was released electronically, I noticed that for some unknown reason the background color was changed. For the sake of comparison, I am posting both – you can decide which one you prefer.  Regardless, the album drops on May 18th – be sure to pick it up.

Post #1173 – FABA Collage Mag

FABA collage Magazine issue 2

I was very excited to receive my copy of FABA Collage Mag #2 in the mail yesterday, which includes two brand new collages I contributed (Bloodfire and The Sirens Simply Vanished) as well as short interviews about each piece and a photo of my studio space.

I don’t think many people know this, but FABA Collage Mag gives a percentage of it’s profits to each of the artists  featured in each issue (unlike most other small art publications, which often charge a submission fee just to even be considered for inclusion).  Much respect to the crew behind this mag for that, and for stepping up and doing something positive.   It’s not about “Do-It-Yourself”, it’s about “Doing-It-Together.”  That’s an attitude that I can get behind.

And I’m honored to be included in issue #2, along with so many other great artists. Please consider ordering a copy for yourself:
