I've featured this piece in the 3rd installment of my collage news feature, COLLAGE: a showcase of absolute gems Part 3 [link]
Thanks for being part of what makes forming these collections so much fun for me, by creating an interesting and eye-catching piece that fits into the calibre and style of work that I really like to feature. It doesn't surprise me that this one earned you a Daily Deviation.
If for any reason you would like your piece removed from the collection please let me know and I will get in touch with admin on your behalf.
I've always been a photoshop collager but I'm really starting to take interest in the traditional collage. This is simply amazing. The composition, photo choice, and typography all work excellently. Great work! I look forward to seeing more.
the ephemera I use comes from a variety of sources.. it's all about keeping an open eye
I'm an extreme packrat when it comes to paper! I've started packaging up groups of ephemera into "collage packs" which you can see on my site @ somavenus.com
-I don't know if you are interesting in a critique of any sort ... but overall I really like this and the only thing I would have to say negative about it at all is that I am not sure about the bullseye you created.
--Compositionally speaking, it obviously creates an obvious focal point. That is there and groups with the two figures creating a very dense area. And I understand, at least what I assume you are trying to do, with the third figure, who is a little separate from the one large group, I am just not sure if, at least for myself, that it is separate enough to carry the same visual weight that the bottom right carries.
---Well, Hopefully you don't mind me critiquing a little bit , I just figured that you already had so many nice comments, which mine is also intended to be, but yeah. Just a thought of what "may" make it even better.
