For many of my comics, I drew elements of my panels separately and put them together in the computer. This left me with a bunch of random images, some drawn on the same piece of paper. So, in September 2011, I spent a week or two cutting up, gluing and painting a series of collages to be sold at comic conventions.
This first version of this collage, Gas Mask 03 A, combines a drawing of Albert Einstein that I made in college, a drawing of a magic wand from graduate school and background art from Super Duper Ham: Day One.
Some customers at conventions implied that my artwork looked unfinished because it lacked color, so I decided to update some of my collages. In June 2015, I stripped away the magic wand and used paint to add some color.
