Paper on Book Cover

(colors are lightly faded from sun exposure)

 

Characters from a NYT article on colored paper, on Mortal Kombat screenshots from a gamer magazine on rips from a Spanish encyclopedia on the book cover of a Spanish Encyclopedia.

 

The background went on the book cover first. There was a lot of thought that went into the symetry of the cut outs of Spain, but now they are mostly covered. When I did not have the subject matter that I liked, I waited. Then I came back with the symmetry of the screenshots. After having a few finalists for the foreground, I decided on the doctor/patient combination, and I switched their legs because why not.

 

Again aiming for comedy. Public restrooms, men's especially I think, are not the most comfortable places to be sometimes. Sometimes you feel like you might have the same focuc you might if you were in a fight to the deal.But in this case, you are focusing on nothing at all: the wall in front of you. The original caption from the article was something like "thanks for blessing me doc". So, now the shoe is on the other foot.
