I like the recent collages you are producing! Do believe the dreamy images are what cats only see! Especially being above them all!

I’ve had this little dilemma of late about using photos and images off the web. It’s so handy to have access to millions of images in seconds and I see it the same as musicians sampling music and mixing it up. For one thing I try to change the image in some way, ie, colours size, etc. and I also try to use older type images so that copyright shouldn’t be too much of an problem (plus I love the linework of these old engravings woodcuts and etchings).
Most of the time I don’t know the names of the particular illustrators/artists either so I can’t really credit them…
But in this case I should say that the picture you can see in the back ground is by the well known Mexican artist Jose Guadalupe Posada (1851-1913). Google him for more images and bio.
Thanks for all the wonderful coments everyone!

Oh I like this, especially the sky-high image in the cat's head, so very apt. Great collage.

This is gorgeous Anthony- i love the cool crisp blue of the clouds against the rich woodgrain and earthtones. I also really like the rough sketchlines of the cat's outline. really nice :)

Wonderful collage! I love the choices you've made both in images and in colors.

A cat without a grin or a grin without a cat? In fact, neither! Cat as absent space is a spooky concept and you've really brought it off - excellent use of textures, particularly the Magritte-like, head-in-the-clouds effect!
