My Godzilla Collage (2000)

I spent part of Tuesday wrestling with my temperamental scanner, trying to get all the covers of my old fanzines scanned for my continuing discussion of OWARI's past on this blog. While sorting through those old memories, I discovered this little artifact in OWARI #9 (December 2000). I had forgotten it even existed.

My best recollection is that this was created purely as filler. However, I obviously put some thought into how it was laid out. Godzilla is clearly visible in every shot. I don't think that was just luck.

This was assembled from photocopies of material from my personal collection of Japanese books. I've cleaned it up a bit, to cover up some of the stuff that was hidden when IT was photocopied as part of the issue's contents. It's not as straight as I would've hoped, but what can you do a full decade down the line?

Anyway, since I can't post this on my art site, please enjoy it here. You can click the image to see it larger. And by the way, I also have an even larger scan handy. Waste not, want not.
