It’s Time to Pick Up The Scisssors. I’m Missing Making Collages.

Nubby Twiglet | My Cross To Bear Series by Shauna Haider

As I was digging through my archives over the weekend, I came across my art series from 2011, My Cross To Bear. And as I scrolled through, it reminded me of how much I missed creating collages.

I started making collages years before I really understood what graphic design was or owned a computer. In the late 90s, I began carefully piecing magazine snippets together, forming rough layouts. It became a huge passion of mine and lately, I’ve felt like I’ve lost touch with it.

Design is my job, but it’s tricky because it’s also my passion and my hobby. Doing design is my everything which makes it really hard to step away. But in a way, I’ve realized that don’t need to step away from something I love as much as just switch things up. Occasionally, I need to change the mediums and take the time to get back to my roots.

I’m ready to start making collages again. Just for fun.

Welcome to Wolfgang. Our house finally has a name: Wolfgang Manor. Honestly, my brother and I usually aren’t posed on the couch like this when people stop by to visit. We just did a shoot for a Swatch / POP Magazine collaboration and took a few extra photos with one of the setups.

Passports. My brother decided that he wanted to go to the Olympics (long story) so we showed up at the post office Tuesday morning for passports. My photos look like mug shots. His make him look like a 70s era Journey roadie.

Mall Food. We then stopped at the mall food court because he was hungry. He is always hungry. Always. Then we bought matching gray jeans at Forever 21 (as seen on our motorcycle shot below). Finally, we forgot which parking garage we were at. Four hours of my life I’ll never get back….but it was worth it.

Fool’s Gold. I have the best aunts ever. For Christmas, one gave me a huge gift basket full of candy and miscellaneous treats. The other delivered cashmere socks and gold coins. Wait….are those chocolate inside?!! Short-changed again, Auntie Nubs!

Space Room. Earlier in the week, I joined a pack of snowboarders at the Space Room for good conversations, cheese fries and drinks (be careful, they are strong). Don’t you love the ambience? They decorate it for every holiday.

Jam Time. Afterwards, I kept them company in the basement while they had a jam session. We then watched a documentary on Aliester Crowley. Black magic is always a great way to end the night!

Like Brother, Like Sister. My brother and I went jeans shopping at Forever 21 and came out with the same skinny, shredded gray jeans. We thought it was so funny that we hopped on the back of his motorcycle for photos and threw on our white leather jackets to complete the look.

Paperdolls. I just completed a piece for the upcoming M.I.S.S. Paperdolls show at FIFTY24 Gallery in L.A. The ‘dress’ is affixed with gold nails and lifts to reveal the body underneath.

Until Next Week,

My friend Jay at Nemo HQ made these two awesome Nubby spreads and I thought I’d share. I love seeing how other designers interpret my work. Thanks to Jay’s mad design skills and hard partying ways, there is never a dull moment at the office.

Flashback: Heat Of Summer, 2007

Heat of Summer was a quick collage series that I did on hardboard during the summer of 2007. In a way, it was a practice run before committing fully to Modern Baroque.







After the whirlwind that was three solo shows last year, I took six months off but have finally felt the urge to dive back into fine art again. I’m starting a new series next month that will perfectly merge fine art and graphic design more-so than my past work has. Stay tuned.
