This is the project I’ve been most exited about so far this Fall. I’m taking another Junior Illustration class, and our professor, Alain Corbel, had us design a series of five sardine tin packages. I would never eat sardines, but I had a hell of a good time making these.
I was inspired to work this way after seeing Vik Muniz’ documentary “Waste Land” over the summer. Its great, you should watch it. I have never done found object collages before, but I loved it. I should clarify that, with the exception of the leafy sardine, by “found object” I actually mean “stuff I had collected over the years just in case it would come in handy one day.” Well it did come in handy, finally!
