A Woman and Two Men

A 3D collage made with magazine clippings shows two men at a table with books on and under it next to a woman who is standing and pointing. One man is black with short gray hair and a black long sleeve shirt and is staring at the viewer with a bored expression. The other man has light skin and dark hair, is wearing a dark jacket and pants, and is leaning on the table holding an open book while frowning in the direction of the woman. The woman has a medium skin tone and dark hair pulled back into a ponytail. She is wearing white earbuds and a white tank top and is looking and pointing with her left arm above her head while her right arm is at her side. In the background is a cube bookshelf full of records, a lounge chair with a black and white floral pattern, and a window with one side of a black curtain pulled to the side and the other side down.
