Title: 3-D Self-portrait, 2D Mixed Media/Collage
This mixed media artwork was inspired by a self-portrait that I had previously drawn. I had started this creation by drawing the portrait on a large piece of mat board. I then cut up pieces of magazine pages to match the colors of the original image. The colors of the magazine scraps do not completely match up, but I think it gives this artwork a sense of uniqueness. I decided that I wanted to make this project a little more unique by putting cardboard under the pieces of magazine to make certain parts of the image pop out and look "3-D". This artwork is nothing that I have ever done or ever seen before. When I had started this project I did not know how it was going to turn out, but I am very happy with the result.
