avoid those by RichardLeach avoid those by RichardLeach
Paper collage on cardboard, 2.5 x 3. 5 inches.
I took a "more is more" approach in this one.

The blue lake and the green sun... it's a portal view to WHY the bottleneck might exist.
Everyone taking the same route to see the same thing.

I won't make that mistake.

Yes, if you have to eat ideas, I agree that it would be wise to avoid bottlenecks, and your own neck can become the bottleneck itself!

The negative space left free adds to the power of the piled section.

Sideways message pushes the wording message home harder.

More fine composition.

Learning alot again.

I like the idea of piling stuff up.

I always either seek total clarity or analogy ridden ranting.

To condense the words seems to make sense in this very well.

Like ten men leaping on one vampire kind of sense.

If that make sense haha!

It did make sense :lol:

When I have nice scraps - well, I think they're nice - it's always tempting to let each one be completely seen. I have to overcome some resistance, in order to pile stuff up. But when I do, unplanned and cool things sometimes happen.

Unplanned is hard for me but I think I will try it
one day. Unplanned words AND message.

See what happens.

:iconponderplz: hmmm, yes, one should use a good field guide to avoid those that are toxic... they can appear very similar to the most delicious ones :nod:

and you get less hungry after. it takes time to digest ideas, poems are like flowers in your mouth, very light :)
