Shanna’s mosaic mama for Calico Babies

Shanna's mosaic mama for Calico Babies

Shanna Faulkenberry did this for a new project her mom and I are doing together. The project is called Calico Babies in public, but it’s soul name is F* you, babies. I am going to attempt to replicate this drawing – in almost life-size – out of plastic shopping bags. It is going to function as the background for a ‘quilt’.

These are the ‘Calico Babies’ I made for the new project Janine Collier and I are creating. Baby silhouettes are hard to do. I am still working out the materials. These are on – from left to right – vellum, acetate and part of a frosty shower curtain. I colored each one black with a Sharpie.
