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!

casting thoughts beyond the doubt...
misdirected led by crumbs...
memories fractured over time...
drawn together, connecting threads...
making sense... if only in whispers

Thank you. It's very challenging to use those face card marks in the design. I am still experimenting. Kind of addictive!

i am tired of seeing playing card collages - but these, and especially this one here are truly great. chapeau, buona signora :heart:

Grazie, signora. When it comes down to it, I find I really enjoy hunting for the Essence of Playing Card, as well as using the face markings as intentional elements, not just as things to cover up.

The eyes are so engaging. The landscape format works very well in this one.

Landscape format is usually difficult for me because I get lost on the ends. But this one...well, it just walked into place. Glad you enjoyed. I love this one myself. :heart:

This one is nice too, but the card does not bring as much value as other three. Like this series a lot tho.

All this is so personal, isn't it? When I look at this one, I see myself, so of course it rockets right to the top of the pile for me! But then again, there isn't much that I do that doesn't have some slice of me in it....

I agree, it is personal. I really think you are onto something by extracting meaning out of the playing card markings in service to your story.

The odd thing is that I am not a card person (playing, tarot, bridge, etc.), although I did like the heft and feel of childrens' flash cards at one point. But cards have some sort of symbology that is calling to me.
