This was the "end"point for a college tennis volley just before I cut it down to fit into the notebook. I admit, I almost broke the rules and kept this because I liked it so much.  But!  The process is king!  So it got cut further down for the better good of the overall piece.

 

I think, too, I have inadvertently stumbled into a series as I love everything about this collage.  Black and white components make it feel so real that it lends a strong surreal quality I appreciate.

 

Now just to find more cameras.

The swinging couple sat on my desk for about a month before I did something with it.  I liked the image on its own but not enough to put it on nice paper but liked not enough not to put it in my experimentation notebook.

 

So it sat and taunted me until Courtney came and made her horse thing from the other half of the red cloud management advertisement.  Bonus points for the bold, contrasting color.

Dolphins and ladies in the sky.  See, more a general aquatic kick, no?  I had fun with bad visual puns as I cut out the figure's shirt and replaced it with a mountain range leftover from a different piece.  I then stuck her behind more mountains and valleys.  

 

The dolphins were more of a complication i'm still questioning.  I added it to make the whole thing more dynamic but that may have over-complicated it.  The woman with the mountain range and the valley background may have been enough.  who knows?

I mean, maybe you should hold on to the burger when you're running away from giant owls?  Accidents are abundant when running from things.  That's how all the best characters die in horror movies.

Cliff-dwellers are so cool.  These were from a spread on tribes in Arizona and I really liked the colors and the feeling of timelessness.  So, of course, add space scenes and I'm happy.
