Quail Collage

I finished the first collage for my book this weekend. Yipee!

Lessons learned from this first piece:

- make sure the colors of the subject have the highest contrast with the background
- use thread colors that are different but analagous to the fabric colors
- get out of the house and talk to people during the day, or you'll drive Andy crazy!

Here is the work that I did for this collage:

the study

the sculpture

the drawing

the vector graphic

As always, any feedback or suggestions are welcome. Stay tuned for pictures of the next animal!


  1. monica this project is amazing. and ive always been blown away by your sculpted animals!
    keep up the awesomeness!

  2. "get out of the house and talk to people during the day".

    So MeShell's conversations are not stimulating enough? :)

  3. awesome work as usual. can't wait for the next one...

    once i'm freelancing again we should set up a little meet up a couple times a week where we can talk about the projects we're working on or something! that will get us both out of the house, and maybe give me some motivation to actually DO stuff.

  4. wow, amazing! haha, feel free to call me on mondays and tuesdays to get in your "talk to people during the day" :) xoxo
