Hello again, hope everyone had a nice Fourth of July. I shot the neighborhood up real good, haha.
Thought I'd toss up a few collages here that are "in progress" -- and if anyone cares to comment, please do so. The two images above are two options I'm looking at for one piece. Started with the Spider and thought it looked cool with the jaw (Tom Cruise, BTW)... then I stumbled across the weird mask which happened to fit nicely right on top... so I can't decide which I like more. Actually I'm sort of sick of both of them I guess. The spider is more contrived, but the mask is more obvious. Hmmn.
I thought this turned out okay. Wish I could have included all the legs and feet of the people, but they were covered with magazine text. Still, I like the colors and I suppose I'd call this one "done".
Dunno about this one. Always trying make stuff that looks "spontaneous" but it still always ends up looking calculated. And the whole rainbow/prism thing is way played out... I love it, and it adds a nice touch of color to images, but it's an easy crutch and every artist and their brother is using it -- one look at Fecal Face and the like and I swear I'll never use fucking rainbows again... and yet...
This I call "Bouncing Rainbow". Very clever, I know. This is more or less done, though I'm always tempted to keep fucking with the picture... thought about painting a big crack in the earth where the rainbow hits the ground, but I worried I would just screw it up. I guess I tend to rationalize on the side of economy, if only so I don't make mistakes.
Two more for now, and that's it. Thanks for looking, fellas.
