Sad coffee drinker by RichardLeach Sad coffee drinker by RichardLeach
Paper collage on notebook page, about 5.5 x 8.25 inches. Sort of an Ivan Chermayeff approach.

great finds. industrial subjects yield so much. there are some wonderful things going on with light and shadow in some of those shots.

i'm going to have some lunch, back shortly.

thanks very much, Kristijan, I appreciate it! :handshake:

it isn't a cigarette carton, but scraps from here and there, I don't remember what they all are :)

I might add, I find it difficult to be sad when drinking coffee :D :iconcoffeedanceplz:

Are you trying to make some kind of Rorschach tests on us, Richard?

i wonder if my sons know her, i think so... i hardly dare ask!

do a poll - "Have you ever heard of Ella Fitzgerald?"

good idea. didn't come up with a nice thought for a new poll - lack of imagination ...

How many pianos does coffee cost these days?

RichardLeach Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2012   Traditional Artist
Depends on the key I suppose...

And I guess the manufacturer would make a difference, too.

RichardLeach Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2012   Traditional Artist
And the roast of the coffee of course. It's quite complicated.
Reply
:iconlancelotprice:
LancelotPrice Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2012
So is everything, it seems. I hope complication is just an illusion that blows away in a strong and simple wind.

:iconrichardleach:
RichardLeach Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2012   Traditional Artist
Yup. Seriously for a moment - some things we are told are complicated are houses of cards - strong wind would definitely take them down.

:iconlancelotprice:
LancelotPrice Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2012
It's more difficult when the cards are held by a 'dealer'.
