Hi all! :)
So I mentioned before that I was making a lot of gifts this year for Christmas ... well, when it came to what I am sharing today ... I think I was WAY over my head!! LOL!! :)
So my brother is a Superman FANATIC... like CRAZY fanatic!! LOL!! And I know that my BFF Jason and his son Garrison are comic book fanatics!!
I got this crazy idea (really .. it was an INSANE idea!! LOL!!) ... there is a local artist in Phoenix, that takes old comic books and tears them into tiny pieces and then makes HUGE canvasses with them -- he takes the comic book pieces and makes faces of Superheroes!!! I thought ... ok, I can make something on a smaller scale -- not Superhero faces ... but maybe their symbols on their outfits!! Easy... right?? LOL ... not so much!!! :)
I knew my brother was the Superman "S" on his chest ... check, check! Then I asked my BFF Jason what his and his son's fave superheroes were ... their answers?? SPIDERMAN and WOLVERINE .... hmmm ok, Spiderman has the Spider on his chest ... should be easy ... but WOLVERINE?? Yikes!! There is NOTHING on his chest!! No symbol..... nothing!!!!! YIKES!!!!
But I ventured on and bought 4 comic books from the antique store .... hmmmm this was a lot harder than I thought ... as COLORFUL as the COVERS are of comic books .... the insides don't have a lot of colors in them! LOL!!
So I started tearing and cutting and shaping and moving etc etc etc comic book collage pieces to make them "look" like the superheroes I was making ... oy! What a task this was! :)
After I had each one done, I added them to 11x14 canvasses that I painted beforehand for my Brother, my BFF and his son ...
and here they are :)
And Spiderman :)
Even those these were REALLY HARD to create ... in the end it was ALL worth it!! All the boys loved their canvasses!! :)
