Cut n’ Paste Graphics

AND NOW FOR something completely different. The following pieces of ‘art’ – honestly, I’m not sure what to call them – were put together a few years back. In a small scrap book I cut and paste titles, lettering, graphics and pictures to create new themes and ideas, essentially remixing magazines, the same way a DJ might splice sounds together on a track. Magazines used were Clint, GQ, and Games. Lemme know what you think:

This was cut and paste from Clint magazine, an idea for a comic with Samuel L. Jackson as the ass kicking protagonist.

I cut out a great action sequence from Clint and added in a caption from Games magazine. Although simplistic I enjoyed trying to match them up.


green tea redacted lionaroundwriting
Inspired by serial killers, terrorists and kidnappers (cool it, I’m joking) I cut each individual letter for the sequence above Samuel L. Jackson, the reknowned health advocate the world over. The right hand side involved cutting out captions from Games magazine, redacting them Government style and giving them a totally different meaning, and I stuck them on a galactic background with Super Mario letting his stance on gaming and violence known once and for all.

I cut and paste the water from GQ magazine crinkling it to create the 3D water effect, adding in some lettering from Clint and graphics from Games to give some meaning.

  1. Like it. I think you ought to keep half an eye out for instances where you could put together some follow-ups. “Crash comic collage” could become a nice little sideline when you want a break from your writing šŸ™‚

  2. I could best describe myself as “artistically challenged” so my opinion counts for little…but for what it’s worth I really like them! Very cool.

      1. Well, Fionn, I can’t quite say I believe that. We’ll see… šŸ˜‰ I’m glad you found something to keep yourself out of trouble because you really do seem like you’re one small step away from gang life. šŸ˜˜

      2. You should invest in a deadbolt. I would miss your words should the gang decide to force initiate you.
