Mocha Java and Rio



I like the elements of "Fresh and Hot" so this is a bit of a redux.

Fortune Magazine 1944 June


I have been scanning in images from older publications and started with Fortune magazine June 1944. It has some great illustrations and I soon realized it was the month of …D Day. They never mention that because the magazine had to go to press before that time but it is filled with bombing…beach scenes, heavy military equipment…Then I went to the other issue from that year, the April issue  and it is mostly black and white.  So how did Fortune Magazine know ahead of time that the event was going to take place? There must have been wide knowledge of something being planned in order to have so many great colored illustrations.

I chose this illustration because of the Russian flag being included. 

June



Not only is it June... it is a week into June. What happened? I have been scanning in images from older publications and started with Fortune magazine June 1944. It has some great illustrations and I soon realized it was the month of the Normandy beach landing…D Day. So I will add a page from that publication.

I have been gardening and binging on International Mystery programs I had taped a year ago. I have avoided the computer and phone calls but after reading Carol Leigh's blog and her plans to commit to collage I thought I better get back to work.  Thanks Carol!

Fresh and Hot!


I found this lady in a "Glamourous Lingerie" ad in a 1950s magazine. I am having a good time making up stories for these ladies.

Breathe


I did this for the Photoshop Artistry Group Challenge 23 where we were to create a piece of art that expresses a kind of contented timelessness.

It started out cut and paste and then to Photoshop to add the history of the world civilizations and an engraving of islands etc.
