I like the mouth speaking over the shoulder.
Makes me think "ventriloquist" ... or puppet-head politics.

Thanks. "Puppet-head politics" is good. Flapping mouths and hidden hands moving them.

Doesn't that define a portion of what collage is about: replacing what can be replaced with something from another context?

Yes I agree - and so finding patterns that were not "meant" to be.

I really like the woman's lips curving into the postmark.

Oh thanks! Me too - one of those serendipitous finds.

:whisper: "metacharacters" is from something you discarded - thank you!

I am going to strive to be a metacharacter.
(Darn slick cut with the postmark/face, BTW.)

It's the way to go according to this text scrap!

And thanks - I lost control of this card and almost scrapped it at one point but I had to save the postmark/face :phew:

I couldn't believe the amount of time I ended up spending on this card! But it did work out well finally.

Is that a black cat scampering up that hot tin roof? I hope it's not a metacharacter - not sure how it might act! :fear:

A metacharacter crossing your path gives you metaluck - which is not ungood!

OK then. "Not ungood" is good enough for me!

I really like how the face has become the cancellation stamp.

Wildcards are just what we need to break out of the crap of convention.

Thanks, Lance.

"Convention" - the word has started me thinking about so many things... don't have a succinct reply. But I like your take on this - thanks.

I tend to despise conventions of many kinds, so destructive are they.
Reply
:iconrichardleach:
RichardLeach Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2012   Traditional Artist
Conventions like heeding authority even when it's wrong... looking down on those who are labeled different... things like that? I would agree.
Reply
:iconlancelotprice:
LancelotPrice Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2012
And worst of all, political conventions. Both kinds.


And any conventional behavioral custom or thought that is not freshly examined by every individual for relevance to reality and rightness and justness.

I agree. I'd only add that it's not easy to examine everything down to its foundation for oneself. We also have to choose whom to trust for information and interpretation... and many people make terribly wrong choices about that.
