Cool Comfort

“Cool Comfort” is an original handcut paper and mixed media collage on 5×7 matboard.

I love these underwear ads from my 1930s catalog. These two guys are just so comfortable sitting side by side posing for the photo! We also learn how to measure for men’s underwear, which is very important. The background for these two dandies is a magazine image of a woman’s face and her reflection. It is muted behind pink crumpled tissue paper, but hauntingly visible. To top it off, I added “A New Season” text from a vintage ad.
