It’s Saturday, so that means…
RANDOM COLLAGE TIME!
Except it’s not random at all, because having very few of my own collages left to post means whatever I do upload for an entry is anything but random… and because I fully intended to show you this collage on a Saturday.
Mø†h3®ƒµ©∑3® took me over two years to complete, not because it was difficult, but there were many things to correct in the original background, which I found in the Handluva place. In its raw form it’s an image of two hands holding a large number of grapes or beads or pearls, so in March 2007 I started editing those out, working on and off for a long time as I like to do, until all I had was one mutilated hand on a clean blue background.
Later on I built me a couple of fingers, ring and pinkie, to complete the hand. I already had a shrunken man from working on another collage… actually I initially saved the Orlando Bloom image for this handheld image. I edited one of his arms, and voilà, I was done.
Or so I thought.
I was about to save a copy for web use when the idea of placing a bracelet around that giant wrist began to gnaw at me, so I searched through about a dozen websites before I magically stumbled upon Forkometry, and marveled at the squid-looking cuff bracelets. I have a love/hate relationship with jewelry and a love relationship with recycling, so at some point I have got to get me one of those. They are so pretty!
But not as pretty as a shrunken man sitting in the palm of my hand. I’ve had that vision in my head for a very long time, and I love to find collages that depict it with romance and gentleness, that show a little guy that feels perfectly safe in the cup of his girlfriend’s hand because that is the safest place in the world for him.
Well, safe until she starts feeling frisky and commences to tug and rip off his clothes. It’s his fault, for provoking her with his hot little doll-sized body.
