Latest from our new series of Hollywood themed collages.
I’ve had a thing for Hollywood classic films and the ladies featured in them ever since I was about 9 when I caught an afternoon oldies screening of All About Eve. Having come in from a hot Toronto afternoon to the cool basement and a 19 inch tv, I was treated to my first viewing of that film. “Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night” signalled to me that women were capable of more than one speed. Bette Davis let me know that the female “we” could be as hard as diamonds when needed. Juxtaposed against that toughness was a desperation to stay young and vibrant, powerful and a master of one’s craft.
Ever since then I’ve been a sucker for the femme fatales of film noir, the hundreds of dancers in Buzz Berkeley numbers and the comic masters that made up the Hollywood of the 30’s onto the mid 50’s. I’ve always been interested in pulling their images out and celebrating them in a new context.
Anyhoo…that’s where were at right now. We’re also working on a new lolcatz valentines day card.
I’ll keep you updated.
Hope y’all had a great last year and that we all have a beautiful new year.
