Illustration Friday: Multiple -

"Selfportrait of the Artist As A Simulcast"
digital collage by Mick Mather
A very interesting theme at Illustration Friday today - multiple. I get two birds with one stone since this piece does double duty as a new addition to The Selfportrait Series ... I love it when that happens! For now, I fear I must leave you. I need a stiff belt of Jamieson's Irish Whiskey and I know a guy who's quite likely filling the secret hip flask as I write this. Bottoms up!

Don't drink too much, or everyone else will look like a simulcast too! Cool image... I hope you have fun this evening:>

Your blog is doing crazy things, but I'm back to try again... now let's see..what was I saying? Oh yes... okay, I said that you better not drink too much or else you'll see everyone in simulcast. And... I like this image! Have fun tonight:>

I'm fairly certain that the glitches you experienced were due to my tweaking the post at the same time that you may have been accessing it or attempting to leave a comment. As you can see, both posts did make it and I say thanks for the good advice. I'll probably stick to a single shot of whiskey and a glass of red wine. :)

I see a connection between this and the TV dinner series. I am still digesting.Ha! No pun intended! This time your in it and not in front but there's more to it than that. It's not just the tv's. This is a clever entry..never would have thought of it myself.

Have fun having multi-tipples. Just don't have multi-topples :)

Or you could drink too much and only see yourself on one TV as they all come together from being cross-eyed and schnockered! great concept Mick. Make mine Pinot Grigio.

Thanks, Lisa. As it turned out, I had two glasses of Pinot Noir. The snotty barmaid took away my glass while I was on the dance floor, though, and it wasn't quite empty. If you're ever in Syracuse stay away from the Metro Lounge ... it's clear that they don't need to make any money there considering the way they treat their customers. Let the boycott begin!

digital scott:
Thanks ... you're a man after my own heart (burp!). :)

studio lolo:
More good advice, Laurel. I assume you offer this from your vast well of experience? One Pinot Grigio on the mahogany for that gal from The Great White North. Pick Up!!! :D

Thanks so much, Mary. It was a hoot to work on and, sometimes, I'm as surprised as anyone to see the end result. Glad you like it! :)

Ah....I see now your inspiration Mick, you made this AFTER having a spot or two, non? Hence the seeing more than one of you? Still, end result is a cool collage.

LMAO - No! I was completely sober .. I went for my drink after working on this. I really never considered the seeing double aspects of the piece and it's been a real hoot hearing the comments for this one! :D

I really like how your foreground figure breaks only three of the television surfaces, just nipping at the edge of the shadow. Whats interesting is ones natural tendency.. or mine anyway.. would be to turn the foreground face looking the other way until one considers the interest of EVeryone looking the same way ! (what ARE they looking at?) hmmm the empty shot of whiskey.... ? or the barmaid taking off with the half filled drink?
