Ugh, blargh, fart, vomitfuckoff

No disrespect to the artist's person, I'm sure they're an awesome character and maybe this work ain't indicative of their oeuvre, but looky this:

Yes, I posted it upside down on purpose. I can't remember the artist's name because it doesn't matter. Yes, I'm being rude - there is a point and you can be an adult and read on to find out or be a child and get "offended" and act like a dill.

My point: I am -




of seeing "vintage" magazine illustrations in collage. It's such a fucking trend. Shit, you can walk into one of those hipster stores with all the sloth things and buy a framed "vintage" collage print and look all trendy.
Now I get that a lot of artists are using these images because they're now in the public domain or are royalty-free some other way, but fuck me!, you're just doing what every fucking art student is doing.

Why not just make collages? Yes, old glossies do have a particular style and feel and appeal, but EVERY FUCKING ONE OF YOU is doing it - which means they all look the fucking same.

(Which is why the artist's name doesn't matter here.)

Make collages. Use EVERYTHING. Books. Mags. Stamps. Brochures. Found bits of paper. Photographs. X-rays. Wrapping paper. Other collages. Anything fucking printed, painted, drawn, whatever. Use your supposed imagination.
But please.
