A little BREAK

I feel I'm getting bored of making porn collages. I put them aside, came back to more classic form of collage. But still have collage porn magazine in plans...

I've just made a t-shirt with "I ♥ MY LEFT NIPPLE" written on it and hole on the left nipple. This is a first product I've made by using ideas from an old project which I never started, there is only a little sketchbook with lots of ideas like this one for a t-shirt designs and I'm thinking to do something with that soon, I didn't realise it can look so cool. And it's very pleasant feeling when you wear your own artwork on the body.

Flu Time

Instead of wasting time and staying in bed with my last few weeks new bed partners Mr Cold and Miss Flu, during cleaning my fridge I've recorded with my camera a few interesting objects. I was not expecting moulded, expired food can make me so excited, just have a look...

Purple Wednesday

 This evening we (me and Ms A. Lawrance) attended to charity event called Purple Wednesday located in Bay Horse, Northern Quarter. The event was about showing different film projections (local students works), we could buy cardboard artworks made by students (a few works...or maybe all of them made by me and mates from our course), oh and lovely homebaked lemon-chololate flavour cupcakes with amazing psychodelic designs and colours on it. Finally they raised impressive sum of £218.05p from whole evening. I am really looking forward to go for another events like this. ;-D

Watching porn websites, cutting out naked guys and sticking them with animals and other "elements"?? It's not that easy as you thought!

Colour (gay) magazine is not just a collection of naughty photographs. I need to think about things like different advertisements, articles and a cover obviously. I have a few ideas for advertisements already. I'm going to use, of course, photos of Vincent to create them. Here is one made already:

My first Gay Porn Collage Magazine ;-D

I've just tried a little Photoshop editing some of my collages and then printing them on a big A2 format glossy paper. The outcome looks so impressive that I decided to do the same thing with more of them. Now I'm planning to create a real kind of gay magazine using glossy copies of my collages.

Vincent Ferelli

 So, finally I've tidied up all the mess in my mind relating to this project. I've decided to create a series of gay porn collages and use only photos of (my favourite ;-P) gay porn star Vincent Ferelli, what made my work more easy and enjoyable.

Oh, why not!?

I was getting bored of making my all last collages in the same way. I was thinking about a sentence "Bringing art in to your life", why not to change it and make it "Bringing life in to your art". Then I was thinking what element of life I could put in to my collages. As an inspiration I used a collage which I made before, standing man wearing black wet coat with a background made with men's naked bodies.
"What about addictions?"  "Watching porn websites can be one of them"
Yes, I was thinking to create some more controversial, bold pieces. So I've started looking at gay porn websites to find perfect photos for my new artworks. I wanted to create collages where I could use men's nude bodies but at the same time to hide an eroticism by merging porn photographs with random objects and different backgrounds, so it would look really bizarre.

COLLAGE: artists research, books

During a creating new things I always forget how important is to look at other people work, to get an inspirations from different artists, get a few ideas, do some brainstorming, and just after that start creating things. It's important to not follow just the first idea which comes to your mind.
I've been looking at works of different collage makers like: Lou Beach, Herbert Bayer, Winston Smith, Richard Hamilton and other artists, like an animator Terrence Vance Gilliam. And I think it changed a lot my way of thinking about and making collage.

I was looking for inspirations in art books "Mixed Emulsions" (Angela Cartwright) and "The Art and Craft of Montage" (Simon Larbalestier) which are showing different ways of making collages and using alternative materials like old photographs, fabrics, newspapers, 3D objects (jewellery, wire, buttons) or plastic foil.
