You Big Baby

Photomontage by Dug North

I made back in 1996 without Adobe Photoshop or classes -- just a hobby knife, rubber cement and some colored pencils.

I like to play with scale. This one was easy because the landscape picture (from a cigarette ad) was so dramatic and shot from high up. The baby's already playful expression is exaggerated because of the his/her giant size -- exploding out of the image frame itself.

It's funny that a non-computer generated image may live on as a web site or MySpace background.
