Kate Endle: My Woodland Wish








Kate Endle (whose work I have blogged about previously here) partnered with her husband, Chris Ballew of Caspar Babypants to write My Woodland Wish. It's 32 page children's picture book with each page adorned with Kate's signature charming cut-paper collages. It's a story of little girl "based on one of Kate Endle’s enduring memories from her own childhood in which she wished she could commune with the birds, frogs, rabbits, and butterflies that she encountered." You can view more images from the book or make a purchase for little one in your life from here.

Mark Wagner's Dollar Bill Collages



Brooklyn based artist and a co-founder of the Brooklyn Artists Alliance Mark Wagner makes these spectacular collages using glue, x-acto knife and mighty American dollar bills.

Artit's statement:  "The one dollar bill is the most ubiquitous piece of paper in America. Collage asks the question: what might be done to make it something else? It is a ripe material: intaglio printed on sturdy linen stock, covered in decorative filigree, and steeped in symbolism and concept. Blade and glue transform it-reproducing the effects of tapestries, paints, engravings, mosaics, and computers—striving for something bizarre, beautiful, or unbelievable... the foreign in the familiar".

It took one year and 1,121 dollar bills, that were then meticulously cut into 81,895 individual pieces, to make this piece.
