WEIRDO UGLY ART + TEEN-AGE MUTANT / Collage / 1985-7

Here are 2 pieces I did using collaged images, copied on xerox, then, drawn on with either ink of black colored pencil. Both were colored by computer.

I had been doing some simple collage pieces when the WEIRDO Magazine 'ugly art' contest came up in 1985, so, I decided to get more complicated, and, it paid off. Pal Brian Riedel's excellent piece is also in that issue, WEIRDO #15!

Teen-age Mutant is another piece similiar to the WEIRDO one in complexity.
