Many times I've been hanging shirts and come to a wire hanger with the somewhat iconic "WE (HEART) OUR CUSTOMERS" paper wrapping. I knew I would eventually rip it off and assimilate it, but I let it remain there and the idea roll about in the back of my mind. Today I took it off, tore it to a nice shape, and glued it down. I felt the man with the camera from a vintage ad would work well. He was first upright, but then realized it was more aesthetically pleasing and eye catching if he was inverted. I shuffled through my boxes of clippings, looking for red. I came across several red classic cars, trains, and boats. I almost went with the boat. What man doesn't love his boat? Or, at the very least, his desired boat? I settled on this red DeSoto. I liked how the perspective draws the viewer to the woman joyfully looking back, then on to the heart. From the heart, the viewer catches the a glimpse of the chair, leading the eye up (down) the length of the man photographing the lady. A circular composition has been created. I pay close attention to how all the elements work together when I compose a collage. Elements should play off each other visually and/or intellectually.
