Animals collage

This project came with a lot of excitement for the kids at the Kalamaiki art class! The hard part was to chose witch animals to make 🙂 I made a Cat and the Owl as collage examples for the class, and to explain the potential uses of the collage technic.

I used some old magazines to tear apart and glue on the paper. I told them to group the magazine pages by colors and then chose the main color for their animal. After they finished gluing the pieces of magazine the animal background was ready. Meanwhile they drew the eyes and the nose on a separate paper then painted and glued them to the collage background. The mouth, whiskers and some shades are added as final touches.

Send a picture of your drawing to share with the others to info@marabranco.com


Mokulua islands

“Na Mokulua” in Hawaiian means “The Two Islands”.
Also known as the “Twin Islands”  they are part of the Hawaii State Seabird Sanctuary. The islands are located on the Windward side of Oahu about .75 miles off Lanikai beach and are accessible from an enjoyable kayak ride. Lanikai is one of the most scenic beaches in Hawaii, the turquoise water with the twin islands on the horizon make a perfect postcard setting.

Bringing color to life

Bringing color to life is an excellent work by Dentsu London for the Canon Pixma.

It’s amazing to see the effects that the sound waves have on the paint and how it really becomes alive.
