Junk Mail Art: Animal from Oaxaca

choose your world wht s

shed light in the dark
now imagine    choose your world
belong to someone

I found a wonderful children’s alphabet book at the library called “ABeCedarios”.  It’s illustrated with brightly painted animal sculptures made by the Jimenez family of Oaxaca, Mexico, which I’ve used as references to make some creatures in collage.

Poem courtesy of my collage box oracle.

    I love the collage–and your collage oracle is very wise.
    We have a Mexican print that a friend gave us–I think it may also be from Oaxaca.
