I saw this collage by Hope Kroll on dear ada and I need to share it with you. This image expresses so exactly the philosophy behind this blog:
That's it in a nutshell collage. A jay with a collection of gems. That is what magpie and whiskeyjack is all about; corvidae collecting sparkly things.
Hope Kroll has a tremendous collection of weird and wonderful collage, in the surrealist tradition, on her site. Check it out. These are thumbnails of Wakening, Science and Faith, and Precursor, respectively.
