My subject matter was hunting and the texture of fur.
|Collage with extremely thin paper with pigments of leaves and pulp.|
|Collage of "meat businesses" in the Chicago area from the Yellow Pages|
|Collage with the use of kitakata paper.|

|Yellow Book collage close-up.|

These are only a few pictures of the final prints. For my printing paper I used two different shades of Rivers BFK paper, one in an off white cream and another in a dark natural brown. For a few of the editions, I used a Japanese rice-paper, kitakata. This paper is very thin and has sort of a pink flesh tone to it. For four other editions of the print, I used pages from a Yellow Pages. The pages used were numbers and advertisements for meat businesses; one of my favorites, "STEAKS UNLIMITED" (which is no closed).
