Elsinore collage (circa 1993)

Elsinore collage, circa 1993 © J. Thomson, all rights reserved When I went to college in 1992, I virtually stopped making collage altogether, unless it was related to an assignment. I made this collage for a 2D class, but I don’t remember the assignment. It depicts a water dream I had that seems to be influenced by Hamlet (I played Horatio in my last theatrical appearance in Dallas before leaving for college, in 1992). So I titled it Elsinore.

New Year’s collage (1990-2010)

New Year's Celebration on the Moon © J. Thomson all rights reserved In 1989 I came out of the closet as an atheist, and so I did not make a collage to celebrate Christmas, but I did make a New Year’s collage showing a surreal party on the moon, with chameleons, a chick and a frog. (The frog was for my friend Larry, who has collected them for years.) For the 20th anniversary of this design, I revamped it and reissued it. I guess I should make another version available without the year on it. Available in the giftshop here.

Here’s the updated version:
