Artist of the Week: Collage

Originally uploaded by Teckelcar
This week's artist is Nate.

He has quite a mop of hair now and that's the way he likes it. He still looks very cute, but I keep wanting to just neaten up his hair.

Anyhoo, this is him by one of the outdoor panda enclosures at the National Zoo. He actually requested this photo. He plans on bringing it in for his "share day" at school, the theme this month is interesting places/travel. He had a great time at the zoo and he wants to tell his class all about it.

Not so coincidentally, his art project is from school. He brought it home a while ago and I was immediately struck by the vibrancy of the colors. I like how the ocean's waves were formed by tearing the paper at such an oblique angle that the raw white center of the paper is exposed and thus creating the foamy white-caps of the waves. The green bits are a sea serpent that (sadly) lost its head in transit. I think this is my favorite work of his so far this school year.
