August's Guest Contributor:Sara E. Barnes | Doodlers Anonymous

For the month of August we are welcoming fellow blogger and illustrator Sara E. Barnes as a guest contributor here on DA. Sara is the creator and voice behind the wonderfully curated website Brown Paper Bag and is working towards her MFA (Illustration Practice) at the Maryland Institute College of Art.

Sara's own work is an amazing mix of color and collage of scraps, ink, paint, and embroidery. I'm fascinated by how the loose pieces of cut paper come together to reveal such a complete and controlled final artwork. I've gathered a few of my favorite works by her here to introduce you.

Welcome Sara, and be sure to check out the studio tours feature on Brown Paper Bag, where she gets really great access and photos of artist studios.

  4. really original work i do have one quick question. Do you do a previous sketch before the collage, or does it all work itself out?
