I’m sure I’ll belabor this aspect of collaging again in the future, and when I do you’ll smile, back away slowly, and perkily announce as you run away:
“Yeah. I care about that a lot. A very important issue. Something should be done about it. Every time an artist shares a collage where eye contact is missing, a kitten loses its wings.”
Then I’ll sigh and think about throwing a house at you because I’ll know you’re lying to me, but that won’t stop me from constantly repeating that I love it when—in collages— the woman and the man are looking at each other, instead of at the camera. Seriously, when you are with someone you really really like, and that someone happens to be a giantess or a shrunken man, you are not going to look away to smile at the lens of a camera.
That’s just goofy.
But you know who’s not goofy? Real Live Dead, or rld as he’s known to our kind. He enjoys collaging destructive giantesses, but his gentle giantess scenarios are also cosmically well done. Example:
When rld shared it with the community at Giantess City, I asked him if he would allow me to modify it a little to show that eye contact I’m talking about. When he said “no” I threw a house at him, and then somehow he changed his mind.*
Months later I uploaded the following image to the Tiny Village image thread. I had pasted a pair of new eyes onto the giantess, therefore frankensteining a lowered gaze directed at the man who’s waving at her, the little guy whom I imagine owns her heart, and who has the terrific job of peeling those grapes.
During my last high school year I sometimes wore a skirt like that to school. No observations about its transparent nature shamed me into not wearing it. I wasn’t trying to be a hussy. I simply didn’t care about anyone’s opinion, and I liked the way it looked with certain tops nuns would have found suitable.
*Not really. Not only was he extremely nice about my improving changing his lovely work, but he also mentioned wanting to see the end result.
