this is part of a series I did a few months ago, my organic series. There are several pieces. I plan to develop this idea further. The pictures I used were from an early 70s photo album that I found. These were created using a photocopier, a typewriter and acrylic paint.
I created these pieces using images from vintage books. The background is made from pages from a book that I painted over. I clipped the images and coupled them with some captions I selected. As usual, matching the right caption with the image was the hardest part. I love the way these turned out.

I took a silkcreening class this past semester and it was a great experience. I learned a lot and also got to make some very cool stuff. This was my first design. We were told to pick something simple. I used an image I saw in a 1967 physical fitness book. I stared at the image for a while until the caption came to my head. ‘This Charming Man’ is one of my favorite Smiths songs. I made a number of shirts and a few tote bags as well. I don't have the screen anymore, so I probably won't be using this design again in the future.
