My latest class assignment involves us creating a collage of images combined to illustrate a short poem, quote or verse from a song. While trying to determine what to do I turned to my favorite book of poems, "Where the Sidewalk Ends," by Shel Silverstein. I found a poem I really like, titled "Invitation." The poem reads:
If you are a dreamer, come in,
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer...
If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.
I thought this was a great poem considering the classes I am taking. Here is the image I have come up with so far. All of the images, except the stone dooryway come from Getty Images, a site we use for our classes. The stone door is an image I found at tunari.tripod.com/id6.html .
Hope you like this image, it was creating using Photoshop CS3. Let me know if there are any suggestions. I love feedback.
