Cut and Paste

Here are a couple of new collages in a series I'm currently working on. I was looking at the Jan Tschichold and New Typography book by Christopher Burke and I was really into the look of the artwork for print, as I have mentioned previously the aesthetic really appeals to me. What interests me is the making and putting together of work, the production and the notes for printing etc. The pieced together artwork, it's really beautiful and revealing, but it would have a short life, once used it was stashed back in the planchest and forgotten, its job done.
In today's digital age where the screen presents finished design to us and hides its secrets, I'm becoming more and more interested in the process of making, real live cut and paste!
