A close second to my love of using inspirational quotes in my art work is the use of humor. I have created a huge amount of mixed media, collage and altered art that has sarcastic and irreverent humor as its base. It just is SO me, what can I say.
When I first started using humor in my art (in my two lines of funny magnet art), I was a little worried. I wasn't sure anyone else had the same sense of humor that I did. As it turned out, I had nothing to worry about at all. Everyone loved the magnets (and greeting cards which came next) and I still sell them to this day at my art shows. I'll do a post about some of them another time. In the meantime, a number of other people have had great success with this type of humor, often paired with vintage images as I did. If you've seen Anne Taintor's stuff, you'll know what mine is like.
Following are some examples of some other art pieces I created using recycled drink coasters as the substrate, along with salvaged papers, vintage images, discarded embellishments and scrap ribbon for hangers.
Hope you have a laugh!
