Hello-I am Rick St.dennis artist/designer and new member of the support team for Collage Obcession-what fun...This is my first challenge for you so I wanted to share something (someone) I have had more fun with over the years....well anyway...
I usually call him Luigi (or Mario) and I have done horrible things to hime-he has had his head ripped off, his innards replaced by bloody skulls or tea party goodies-he has had two heads (at least twice) an still he smiles through it all.
I liberated him from the web at some point in the past so I don't know much about the origins of the photo-looks like early 1900's.
I believe if you click the picture you will get a larger version to use-if not email me for a 300 dpi scan (email@example.com).
So my challange is Carnivale Pazzo-use Luigi to make a composition that puts him in the spotlight at some strange, steam punk, grunge. edgy Carnival on the edge of the abyss or maybe its a more friendly upscale carnival performing for the Queen of Hearts in Wonder(under)land-as long as it's PAZZO-thats CRAZY in Italian.
You may do whatever you like but Luigi must appear somewhere in the composition and the theme is Crazy Carnival-Carnivale Pazzo-the place where nightmares meet dreams in the center ring.
Have fun-can't wait to see what you do with/to poor Luigi-no matter what he will just keep on being his friendly smiling self.
I will do a blog post about Luigi/Mario and show you many of the incarnations he has endured in my hands.
Sola...perduta...abbandonata...in landa desolata..orror!
