Collages Made from Comic Book Pages: Typographic Violence
May 30th, 2013
Most comic book lovers handle their comics with care. Some of them even buy multiples of one issue or book just to have a perfectly mint copy in hand. But not Amy Watkins. She believes that if you love someone – or something – you have to cut them to pieces and turn them into another art form. KAPOW!
Watkins turns her old comics into collages that highlight comic book sound effects, from Nightcrawler’s teleportation sound to the oldie but goodie pows and blams.
You can see images of Watkins’ other collages on Design Taxi, but if I were you I’d snap up the four collages I featured on this post. Watkins is selling them on her Etsy shop PopUpCollage for just $35-$45 (USD). Those are criminally low prices for such unique and wonderful pieces. She also accepts custom orders for $50, where you get to pick the colors and sound effect to be featured.
