I love going to antique shops.. there are always ‘ treasures’ to be discovered.
While at the antique shops, I took pictures of vintage phones and thought I could use them in a collage for this prompt.
To me the vintage phones that I’ve photographed, looks like faces, so I used it as an example of pareidolia.
I then thought that it would be fun to choose different ‘wall paper’ to use as background for these characters. While at a fabric shop, I looked for fabric that could possibly work as wall paper designs. I decided on these 4 and took pictures of the fabric.
Then I browsed through magazines to find ‘bodies’ for them. I cut them out and stuck all the pieces together to create collages.
After that, I tried to think of things my characters could possibly say and looked at memes/ jokes online for inspiration. I added speech bubbles. I didn’t like the handwritten text, so re – added it digitally.
Out of the 4 collages, I like the green and blue ones the best. I loved the way the 4 different backgrounds worked well when put together.
