Illustration Friday: Scale -

"Selfportrait of the Artist Not to Scale"
digital collage by Mick Mather
In addition to being my post to Illustration Friday for this week's theme, scale, I also have it serve double duty as the latest image in The Selfportrait Series. I believe the visual puns are self-explanatory and I'm off on important business with the family today. We'll chat again later. :)

Thanks for the comment, Velvet. I do have a story to go with all of my work...funny, though. This one really doesn't have much of a story beyond the visual jokes that exist within the theme. The mountain environment is built from fractals while the selfportrait of myself comes from an older collage piece, it too from The Selfportrait Series.
