If I were you I'd be a bit scared, because it can be at any momment swalowed into graphic design instead of art collage, and this because you are retaining most of a very iconografic image, when you have such a good photo you really have to go away from it's beauty, and here I'm not entirely convinced, specially because of the new book covers for biographies that allways look for this specific tell tale images, in a way it's not our fault but truth is art is banalized and cheapen and this images in specific suffer because of it, I absolutely love what you have done it's graciously balanced but I think it needs extremities or more and more work so to make it heavy, or less to make its light and anemic.

You make such a good point. It is hard to escape being influenced by what we see and what we are told is "right." In this case, I was trying to integrate the face markings on the playing card with the image of the girl's face. I was trying to suggest powers that are unseen but still very strong. Working with red playing cards is challenging because that pop of color seems to push everything into that graphic design feel! Every time I alter a playing card, I learn something new. Thanks again for this comment!

Don't mention it, it's one of my fears when is something going over the border to other area... and then you face the side and you have an art director staring at.xD but I love this you keep an inner respect for the "breathing intimate" space of every shape, mantaining a dialogue and relationship between them.

I think this is why I like to work by myself...add social interaction and everything changes! I agree with the breathing space. Every idea needs that. Well said!
