This takes my thoughts to the 30's depression.

Quite right ... some coal field in ol' West Virginny?

Not being computer literate I do find your digital collage interesting as I do mine the old fashioned way with glue etc. And I went back through your self portrait images again-- so very creative.

The difference in working methods is no more than that of tools and materials employed. I work with pixels instead of paper or found items and software programs in place of knife, scissors or tearing by hand. Too, the original collaging is only half the battle and half the fun. Equally important is the work accomplished via manipulation.

Love that quote and suitably ghostly lines around this ol work horse!

opps, I meant to say that I was planning on trying that technique you mentioned...I didn't know it's name though. I think there's a lot more scope for lino cutting than I originally realised!

Thanks, Lisa, and keep up the good work with the lino-cutting. You've guessed it correctly, there's a LOT more to it than one can see on the surface.
