We’re having a fun round in the Summer Nerd Games, and one of the optional items is to create a crafty self-portrait. I took inspiration from artist Dustin Yellin and got to work.
Over the past month and a half, I made a kind of 3D collage using images I cut out of books, magazines, paper (or that I otherwise had), and eight 12x12 inch acrylic panels. It took A LOT of time to fussy cut everything (over 300 individual images), and A LOT of trial and error to arrange each layer, but I’m pretty happy with how it came out in the end.
It’s really hard to photograph because of glare, but these are a few that show some of the details! The layered effect is way more visible in person.
Thanks for looking!
Edit: Someone else asked to see each layer, so I thought I’d share them here, too!
