Jafabrit: When I can I like to collect river stones to paint faces on. I like to confuse the viewer into wondering if it is the shape of the stone or the painting technique that has defined the features.
BrianZ: I collect primarily artist-signed postcards and vintage die-cuts, but anything that speaks to me is liable to wind-up in my collection. I enjoy the beauty, history and mystery surrounding the unlikely survival of these delicate objects. As their temporary custodian, I feel responsible for maintaining that survival and the unique perspective on vanished times only they can provide.
If you have an unusual or unique collection, leave a comment and tell us about it. In the future, maybe I'll do a whole post devoted to your items.
