Retro images - 30's to 50's [my version] and Vintage images - 20's and earlier - just speak to me. I think it's my heritage of old movies and old photos. But I just find a connection. Of course, I like to alter and amp them and add my usual oddities.
These collages are in the vein of my 'Anonymous Content' work - an image catches my eye and the rest of the collage builds. For some a title emerges, hence no longer 'anonymous.' Is there a story to these inspirations? Not usually. Just evoking a feeling. If you follow this blog, well, then you know I've shared this all before. I just love the hours I can spend in these little altered, captured worlds.
|Retro Gals At The Pier collage
The key image here is the pier, which is in Ocean Beach, outside of San Diego. OB was a favorite get-away place for us for several years.
|The Mary Janes Collage
Our vintage lady pals on the right was the key image. A little color and they were ready to dance. Colorful ladies in the tea cup were nursing school graduates.
| A Dog, A Cat & A Chicken Walk Into a Donut
The young lad on the left was the first to arrive. Deserts should appear in Collage World often. And they do.
