The Essence of Me
Computer Generated Clipart Collage
Linda Halcomb posted an End of Summer Self Portrait Challenge on her blog. Today is the day we are supposed to post our self portrait.
I tried to paint myself, three times. I can’t capture the resemblance, so I decided to do what I call a clipart collage.
Starting from the top….
1. The little business card is a logo I use on a lot of paperwork, like quotes or letters. It’s being held by a stock clipart lady from Printmaster Platinum 17.
2. Of course I have to add a lady at the computer. So much of my work is done on a computer and then I do all the blogging, website, wetcanvas, etc. (stock clipart)
3. I need a boat in there, since I live on a lake. (stock clipart)
4. The books are front and center. They are my motivational books. I made this part from boxes and text.
5. Purple cow is there, because it makes me smile! (stock clipart)
6. We have to have the woman in the plane. Wheeeeeeeee! (stock clipart)
7. And of course, the painter-lady. (stock clipart)
All of this is “welded” together, pixel by pixel, so that it could even be cut from vinyl, if I wanted to make a sign from it.
