MY COMMENTS:
This is a collage, made mostly with newspaper/magazine pictures and words. Also, this is not an excellent photo of the collage so it is better in person.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
This is my first collage and I won't be changing this but would like some advice on later collages. I already posted this in the Gallery, but wanted to get some critiques on it.

Pretty impressive for a first collage- I like it a lot
I like how you had a message to get across to the viewer and you did so in a creative way-
It sounds as though you would like some suggestions for future collages so here goes- Collages are not limited to paper and a surface- try to think even broader- bring in fabrics, metals, string, wood etc- build up your surfaces- that adds more interest to the piece. The other thought is that you can incorporate old drawings and paintings that you might have done or interweave paintings with your surfaces.
I look forward to seeing your next piece!
