An ode to my grandmother
This typographic collage is an ode to my grandmother Julie. En avant marche! (Forward marche!) … was something she used to say to me when it was time to head up the stairs and go to bed.
 I designed this collage for my exhibition at the Open Space Gallery (Tongeren, Belgium) as part of a series of collages capturing my memories of family members that are no longer with us.

My grandmother Julie used to own a sewing shop and was a very creative lady. The cloths and sewing pins I used in this collage are leftovers from her shop called jutex.
 The typeface I used as a basis is by Doyald Young, and is called Homerun Script.
Some details …
Every piece of cloth is a leftover from my grandmothers sewing shop. The collage is glued and then pinned to a board using sewing pins from her shop.
The making of …
