Illustration Friday: Time

Time Machine 5"X7" mixed-media

Mixed-media, you ask? This piece is a 5"X7" canvas board with a section from a found map, magazine cut-outs,photo-copies, a piece from a Hilroy notebook cover, packaging from a cough and cold remedy, images on tracing paper, paint, a section of vinyl tape measure, 2 sections of metal tape measure, acrylic paint, a raffle ticket and varnish. The text is courtesy of my portable Olivetti typewriter--don't drop it on your foot.

I have had an etsy shop in limbo for quite some time and am looking at trying to get it up and running this week.
