Live Free or Die

Collage:  Sharpie pen drawing of
yellow plastic Indian from a Western
 fort play set (play set about 25 yrs. old)
vintage illustrations from 
Child's Book of Knowledge, 
computer generated numbers, 
scrapbook paper, hand-drawn border.
"Live free or die" ~ phrase seen
on a roadside billboard.

  1. Now I'm even MORE confused. This looks like a page on war, or a history lesson. Then you added the bit about candy and confused me even further. You have really hidden your identity, I fear. But I adore that collage!

    1. I think you are making it too hard! :) the subject or images in the piece are just 'what was on hand' for the character...not necessarily a commentary on life or specific hint about the character. Think about what is the common denominator in all of these collages...

  2. "Live free or die" ... you must have been in New Hampshire! It's our State Motto.
