I cut out lots and lots of these figures, usually from the brown paper grocery bags we get. I like the paper they use. And then I paint them, usually.
After I have a whole collection, I make a lot of cards or collages or ATC’s, and I sort the people around to see if they might fit into any of the environments I have created.

Here are a couple of personalities. The woman is coming down the stairs into my studio, via photo, of course. The dunk shot guy is hoping not to strain anything as he relives his high school basketball-playing days, maybe. He should know better than to play ball in the house, I think, but the spotlight was on him, and he couldn’t resist.
