NEW from The Selfportrait Series -

"Selfportrait of the Artist Admiring 'Celebration' on Hockney's Birthday"
digital collage by Mick Mather
- "Celebration", 1991, diptych by David Hockney -

This week's Thursday Challenge theme is celebration. Since today is David Hockney's birthday I thought about doing another piece for The Selfportrait Series that would include his diptych titled "Celebration". Alright then, let's all have a piece of cake and go sit by the pool, shall we?

Thanks very much, you two! For a few years in my early days of photo-manipulation, I always started with a relatively small photographic image, opened it up large and then ran it all through a variety of software programs in the secret visual laboratory.

John:
Thank you, sir! Ma! Where's my speedo?!! :D

Hi, nice to meet you! I like the contrast in this pic. You are masculine, but the background is quite feminine. You dare to show your soft side. :)

This series has always been a favorite of mine as well. There's nothing quite so liberating as having opportunities to lampoon oneself.
