self portrait challenge - last pop.

I stayed out of the pop art challenge this month for the most part. I do not have an affinity for the style nor do I have photoshop (which is a real issue - anyone have any ideas about how to get a cheap copy of 7? I don't even need cs2...).

I do really love Hockney's collage work, though. So in honor of the last day of the pop art challenge I did a little layering work (by hand) of three pictures of me at 6, at 13 and now and then used the 'Hockneyizer' tool at flickr.

Fun!

But now I am really looking forward to getting back into the fray with July's challenge...

(p.s. sorry for the lack of Music Monday this week - took PickleBoy to his first sleepover camp yesterday - eek - and didn't have enough time!!)

(p.s.s. also sorry that I've had to add that annoying garbley password thing to comments but 'they' have found me and I am getting the comment spam big time. What the h*ll? I honestly don't understand how some people (or heads of companies) sleep at night...)

This is great. You should really think about framing this and hanging it up in your house.
