During a group project in my architectural studio in college, a friend introduced me to the wonderful world of Mod Podge. While on a break from school, I decided to use my free time to see what I could do with some Mod Podge and some old magazines. And thus the Magazine Mosiac art-form was born for me. Magazine mosaics quickly became my calming escape from the stressful world of architecture. Then in the winter of 2008, fate found me unemployed from architecture in a tough economy and I decided
An 8 x 10 magazine mosaic takes roughly 20 hours and hundreds of recycled magazine clippings to create. First, I sketch the image with pencil on a canvas, select the colors I need from my magazine files, cut the magazines into small squares, and then using a paint brush and Mod Podge, I start with the background and build up. Every part of art is recycled magazine, including my signature.
