1985-6 smith clevebland rag-o-zeen collages

Found some more of my old collages in Dick Head’s Clevebland Rag-o-zeens from 1985-86. I’d make the collages out of colored scraps, Dick Head would Xerox them in black & white, then print them on multi-colored paper.

Here are four of them – have another nine for later blogs.

I’d churn these things out in half an hour upon request back then for free. Now I’d want money, unless I got the collages back. I told Dick Head each time I wanted the collages back, but he always traded them to a gay lawyer for a 6-pack of beer – the same lawyer I bought my coke from (he’s since died of AIDS and is way beyond prosecution). For some reason I kept making these for Dick Head every issue he asked knowing full well he’d give them away even though I always insisted I had to have them back. Wonder where they all are now.

My 30 year Cleveland past is sneaking out and crawling all over the carpet.
