zacharytrebellas asked: Chris, where do you find your collage materials?

Zachary,

My main process, which I’ve done since SCAD, has been to pick up any free flyers or hand outs, from coffee houses, theaters, art shows, restaurants. However, recently I found the perfect place in Austin to go to. The place is called Recycled Reads. It’s run by the Austin Public Library and they sell books that are too damaged to have at any of their locations. Softcovers are $1, hard covers are $2 and any children’s books or comics are $.50. Even hardcover graphic novels, I’ve found some pretty great stuff just for my comic collection. 

The other great thing is that they even sell old postcards, maps, and brochures/instruction manuals. I think this miscellaneous stuff comes from people also donating to the place. It’s basically a place just  for work like mine because they even have classes on how to make different crafts out of books so I’ve never really felt bad about cutting up books. 

The other thing I always use are cardboard tabs off of boxes. My mom sends me a lot of care packages so I always use the flaps off them. One flap equals one collage. Hence the drastic difference in sizes, which is hard to tell on Tumblr. 

I hope you find this interesting and look out for another postcard! I just sent you one today, hopefully, you’re at the same place!
