Re: This is Me

I like how you repurposed one of your own earlier works. But it kind of overwhelms the little girl.

Re: This is Me

Hi Douglas,
thanks for the critique!!! You have a great eye!
I didn't repurpose it, but my initial intention was to have it inside the story... then I opened up the subject of my artwork having the little girl outside. I didn't want to have just one conceptual approach and interpretation (the overwhelming was welcomed)

Here goes another one:

Re: This is Me

I like it, but again the story-within-the-story (diving man) draws all the attention from the actual story (bird in gallery). Unless you're going for a Sergio Aragones marginalia type of thing, in which case you might want to try a "out of bounds" approach.

Perhaps try lowering the contrast on the diving man image or adding some glass glare or something to provide a visual clue that the biggest object is a picture of a picture.

Re: This is Me

Hahahah.... this is great! Art is a great thing... there is no one way to skin a potato. You are the first one to get a different message from it and this is just an unexpected bonus.
No, is no Sergio Aragones, nor Breugel, it's way more simple!
... my artwork is called 'Mother'... soooo, basically pretty self explanatory, the lill' bird thinks that the diving dude is...his mother...because of the feeding mechanisms and stereotypical position...
The landscape there is in relation with the dude, because he is the mother bringing the bacon from... and bla bla bla...

Re: This is Me

I'm afraid I can't see that one, too small and dark.
