The Art and Illustration of Michael Slack

What do you do with old illustrations? Sell them as stock? Print them out and make origami loafers for your cat? Or do you cut them up and make new art out of them? That’s what I did.

These are wonderful! It’s a great reminder of what we can do with our not so successful pieces. They may not work in their current form but in a collage they can take on a life of their own and become successful pieces. Really wonderful.

Shari. Thanks for commenting. It was some what cathartic cutting those illos up. Most were from a few long projects that at times were rather frustrating. Transforming those elements into something entirely different really put those projects to rest. It was also a great way to vent the minor frustrations that occasionally arise from creating commercial art. Plus I got a few cool pieces to add to the personal portfolio.
