Julia Trigg's Alphabet from QSL cards
I discovered Tulia Trigg's work a few weeks ago on Junkculture. Which if you don't follow, YOU SHOULD! I was really impressed with her work and I loved the fact that she uses old paper like I do in her collages. The ones that really caught my attention were the collages made of QSL radio cards. I'm a sucker for cool fonts, text, and old type. I love it! When I read up a little more on Julia, I found out that she only scans or photographs her old paper ephemera as not to destroy the originals. All her work was digital. What? I have some old QSL radio cards from the 30's and 40's stashed away as well....because I just do...I collect stuff. I still think I like gluing and painting my collages down the old school way. I want to try and incorporate more of these cards into the backgrounds of my paintings or collages.
