Martin Copertari is a Collage Artist. His works are hand made from original etchings from 19th century publications and lithographic prints from the early 20th century and are retouched with gouache.  His works preserve historical images, while at the same time infuse them with contemporary sensibilities.   They are lovely to look at and they make you laugh, always good qualities in art.  To see more of his work check out his tumblr at http://martincopertari.tumblr.com/.
