I don’t like- #2

    'Quote' posters

    Every time I see something like this on my dashboard my eyes roll. They usually come from designersof, which showcases work from designers who submit work. I’ve had my work on there a few times and it’s a good way to promote your work. My main pet hate is rip-off Keep Calm posters that just have no meaning. My sisters got a Keep Calm and Eat Cupcakes poster in her bedroom, WHY?

  1. I don’t like- #1
This is from my tumblr dashboard by unknown.
I find this image very strange and I ask myself what is the meaning. It looks like a cutout collage of a woman with the hair of carol thatcher. Behind her is a cloudy looking sky maybe taken by NASA. To finish it off is some retro honeycomb wallpaper. The white area under the chin could be a beard or the V neck of her clothing, making the honeycomb a jazzy jacket. So from that I interpret this collage as an unfashionable weather presenter/ news reporter. The untidy edges, faded colour and rounded corners made me think this was hand made, but some areas look like they have been computer edited.
Normally I would glance at this and skip past it because it has no clear message and doesn’t stand out from everything else on tumblr. If it was in an art gallery I might think differently and try to understand it more. It’s difficult because I don’t have any information on the artist or even a title. Just going off ‘face’ value
