new york skyline collage

new york city women collage by laura redburn

recently i was asked to create a collage for curioos’s NYC skyline series. at the time i was feeling a little uninspired, but knew a little challenge like this would get the creative juices flowing again. or, at least for a while anyway, but that’s another story.
