    Dude, I’m digging the way this looks like an alleyway wall and how the flow of the pieces changes from top to bottom. In particular, the bottom mid-to-right two look like sand dunes. The whole thing reminds me of a TV showroom window display. Nice job!

    This is great Draw – very very nice. These are some of your most successful abstract comics in my eyes. They have so much to say about the nature of perception. They remind me of Picasso and Braque’s cubism in a sense (the fragmentation of perception). I think Tim B. makes a good point – it feels like a showroom, but there is also some kind of sensuality to the image – probably all the flesh tones which are used.

    Great stuff!!!!

    Thanks guys. When I made this one I wasn’t so sure if it was a good one or not. I really like the cubist idea of fragmenting perception. The original image is of a woman lying on bed in a white sun dress. I chose the image for the lovely textures and huge variety of them. I decided I wanted to only leave a hint of flesh there and let the audience make up its mind. Its really interesting how we perceive things.

    I really like this one – and yeah, it has a cubist thing going on, but somewhat more complex because it uses a photo rather than painting. Now I see why it had a sensuality to it – because of the woman in the sun dress. What is interesting is how much you remove and then what is left. Obviously the colours here suggest the meaning of the image as much as the image itself, as both of us still got the main message of the original add. But instead of being sold something – we are forced to consider its meaning or significance.

    Very nice-
