The first project in my Alternative Illustration Techniques class was a celebrity portrait. I chose SMG/Buffy because I have an "unhealthy" obsession with the show. My first thought was actually Dwight from The Office, made entirely out of office supplies... but that didn't pan out. Anyway, this is the first collage I've ever done, and it was actually really fun even though it took for-freaking-ever. The OCD, anal-retentive side of me really enjoys the tedious application of tiny bits of paper.
