illustration friday "opinion"

executive education (false gods)


...it is my opinion that educating a person to enter the workforce immediately to an executive position is a mistake, I feel that to be a good executive you must have risen through the ranks.


This was a straight collage onto a journal page. I usedimages from a vintage book, magazine article, serviette, and assorted ephemera. I have been wanting to try some straight collages without the added afterthoughts of mixed media. I like that I am forced to work it out with solid pieces rather than "cheat" with added lines and scribbles. I enjoyed this, I am sure I will do more!

interesting collage :)

I agree when I was uni training to be a kindy teacher we were advised not go into a position of head teacher straight away theres a lot of stress involved with running a kindy. One should get some real experience first i believe

Nice work. I like the composition, the hand left it outlines and pointed to the left hand side that directs the eyes to travel the whole piece. Thanks. And thanks for dropping by my blog. Happy Thanksgiving.
