2.5″x3.5″ currency strips, marker on artist trading card

This was a short little project that turned out to be slightly more tedious than I thought it would be. After collaging the currency strips onto the card, I colored them with red marker. Then I colored in the blue area with marker. I first lettered the “stars” (look closer) with the image right-side-up. Upon further reflection (like, immediately upon finishing the writing), I thought it made more sense to have the image upside down and the star-lettering able to be read that way as well. So, I had to color over and re-do the stars.

Upside down. A symbol of distress.
