I find myself saving interesting scraps from my larger cardboard pieces. So naturally I began making a few random collages in my sketchbook out of these pieces. This month I've dedicated a new larger sketchbook to the collages and below is a sequence, in chronological order, of some of the resultant pieces. They started as one thing, pictured in the first image - strata like an somewhat orderly. But they quickly evolved to a more random arrangement, and lately all with a touch of red (thank you Captain Crunch). I still think of architecture - they could be facades or even floor plans, but I attempt to work quickly and not over think them.

For those of you that are not on my Holiday Card list, below is the image I used this year for my printed cards. It was made a couple years ago during a Chicago lake effect snow storm. I went out for a walk during the storm, walked over to the lake at the nearest entry point, near Waveland Golf Course. Dead quiet, not a soul in sight, I had the park to myself, except for this unusual snowman. Hope you all survived the Holidays, and best wishes for a great 2013.
While walking the dog through the alleys of Wilmette this past Holiday Season, the other thing in addition to the garages that caught my eye were the tree houses in various back yards. Some still in use, many abandoned, all offering a refuge of sorts.
