Color and Collage
how he creates his illustrations
Collage is an artistic technique where the artist attaches different objects or materials to a surface to produce new art.
These different objects can be recycled from another source: torn paper, buttons, photographs, newspaper clippings.
Eric Carle uses his own style of collage, he creates his colorful paper which he then physically cuts and pastes together to form a new image. He uses these images to illustrate both his own books, and books written by other authors.
Examples of his work

Different types of collage:

The word collage is derived from the French verb
which means "to glue."
