The last year or so I've had this interest in using old photographs in my iPhone collages. I like the contrast of the black and white photos of the past with the smooth pixels and flat fields of today. When I shop the flea markets and antique stores, I'm always on the lookout for cheap photographs and old books. I love to open up the book and find the handwritten name of someone inside. Lately I've been thinking about the decline of handwriting in our world today, especially cursive. I thought that would make for an interesting contrast with some text in a popular font. I've also been looking for ways to combine traditional and digital collage. I tried my hand at a traditional collage the other day but surprisingly, I didn't enjoy the process. There's a freedom in having an undo button in digital collage. There's opportunities to save your work along the way and easily go back to previous versions. It felt like I was thinking too much about each piece, each cut, and every paste. As I think about ways to move forward with this project, I'm questioning myself. Do I continue with what I'm not enjoying because it's different and challenging? Or do I go back to my comfort zone and do what I like? Am I giving into the Resistance? Usually I find some sort of compromise between those choices so that's where my thoughts are today. What do you do when the process or the results aren't as enjoyable as you thought?
