In the Spring of 2014, I enrolled in an SVA Continuing education course, Graphic Design Basics. The final assignment was to depict a personal journey in a visual way, then turn it into a handmade book.
Inspired by a previous class assignment working with collage, I decided to use collage again to depict my move from Pittsburgh to New York in 2010.
I chose seven scenes from my journey and sketched each one. I scoured my archive of fashion magazines for colors, shapes textures and prints to collage each sketch. For some scenes, I layered my collages with my personal photographs.
