This week's Drunken Stampers Challenge requires the use of a magazine or newspaper clipping.
Mindful of Earth Day later this month, the challenge asks creators to participate in a little reduce, recycle and reUse.
I love this challenge for several reasons: First, as pointed out over at Drunken Stampers, everyone has access to an old magazine or newspaper or phone book or junk mail with enormous text or brightly-colored images.
Second, it's incredibly interesting to see how others interpret an advertisement or photograph or headline -- what one person sees is not what another person sees.
Finally, advertising and editorial art and writing, done well, can be just as inspiring as Picasso and Shakespeare. I swear.
Which brings me to my creation that is not quite Picasso, but I like it: Especially the main image from a Kohler faucet ad (see, a well done ad can be amazing).
The remainder of the card are bits of text and images set at varying heights with 3M puffy stuff (I don't know what it's actually called).
Oh, I also completely lucked out with today's challenge when it comes to choosing a magazine: I happened to have a copy of Dwell from August 2008, covered in dust bunnies, hiding beneath some old sketch books.
