Tutorial of Collage on Photoshop

Found this on Youtube and thought it was interesting to add if you ever wanted to do a basic collage of an image on Photoshop.

Portrait Collage

The previous post made me think about the different ways one can produce an image with just about any medium. The two that I have below interested me because these faces were constructed with pieces that you have no real control over. For instance, the first piece was made with random found objects, probably pieces that you aren't really looking for at the nearest art supply store. Even if they didn't have control, they both turned out very interesting, the kind of art that makes me wanting more.

photo collage

How in the world does an artist do this? Takes a lot of tedious hours I am sure. Image is of Steve Jobs of Apple. Just purely amazing...

Amanda Wachob

I love this piece, "Skipping the Rope" from the very talented Amanda Wachob. She is actually a tattoo artist but exhibits her oil on canvas paintings at various museums.

Even though she usually works with oil on canvas, I wanted to share this because to me, it looks like someone has put a collage together. Her tattoo work here and her canvas art found here are absolutely stunning and I would love if you checked her out.

Do any of you know any other exquisite tattoo artists?

i love artist trading cards. such a fun and cheap way for the art lover to get a new piece of art. so interesting to see what an artist will come up with for such a small amount of space. i found a few collage trading cards on etsy i thought i'd share. do you have any trading cards for sale? ever made one, or two?
