Monster Collection

Monster Collection

by Melissa Lomax

collected papers, mixed media collage

Inspiration: As a kid of the 1980's, I carried around a unicorn instead of a teddy bear and was amazed by mythical monsters in films like Clash of the Titans with stop-motion animation by Ray Harryhausen. This piece was inspired by some of my favorite movie monsters, cryptid creatures, and characters from my imagination. Originally created as artist trading cards, each 2.5” x 3.5” piece is collaged with upcycled materials, vintage papers, and enhanced with colored pencils.
