Brooklyn Girls

I’ve always been into making collages with magazines, and then at some point started getting into scrapbooking paper. This was back when I was living in Portland. One of my roommates at the time worked at a bookstore, and when they had calendars that didn’t sell, they would rip off the cover to send back to the publisher, and then they could do what they wanted with the rest of the calendar. One of these that made its way back to our house was the Brooklyn Girls calendar, where queer girls from Brooklyn dressed up as pinups from the different decades. We didn’t love the way they looked as such (no offense) but another roommate suggested I remake the girls with scrapbooking paper, and thus my art form was born!
