Big Fat TV

 "Big Fat TV" collage by douglas brent smith. when you are  in a hurry and still want to get  there in good spirit be sure to dance & smell the flowers & pack lightly because you've got so much more to pick up put away light up serenade grow and know you're individual flow. NOTES: This is one of a series of collages I made using a good old fashioned copy machine, combined with some cut-out doodles and random pictures -- these apparently featuring transportation (and dance!) I added the poem after posting the collage. Now they belong together! ~ dbSm ~

Stay Young

It might feel like our youth abandons us, but it's always available within us. Ask questions. Try new things. Meet new people and make new friends. That field of work is also a field of play. Stay young. -- doug smith

A Walk In The Country

A New Perspective

  A New Perspective - collage by douglas brent smith, 11 November 1992 Notes: How do you feel about x-ray vision? I remember vividly (in 3D?) seeing for the first time the movie "X - The Man With X-Ray Eyes" starring Ray Milland. I enjoy that movie so much. Poor Ray, suffers so much for his gift, and craves much more than he can ever see. It's a classic story of the perils of experimenting on yourself. But, isn't that all any of us are doing? Experimenting with ourselves? We don't know how this turns out for certain. I have faith in certain destinies, but seriously who really knows? Improving one's vision along the way seems like a great advantage. I've been blessed with correctable eyes, and they have needed lots of correcting over the years. I do not take vision for granted and I do thank God for my vision every day. And, while I do need to use three kinds of eye drops every day, none of them give me X-Ray vision, and that's a good thing. Look at poo

Lamp, 1992

  Lamp, sketch by douglas brent smith, mixed media, 1992 This is a drawing of an actual lamp. I don't remember where the lamp lived -- maybe in our house on 39th Place -- that seems logical. It appears in journal #27 Repercussions .

Downstream Corporation

  Downstream Corporation - collage by douglas brent smith, 30 August 1991. The board of directors is not in the mood for slacking. The stream must keep flowing and the product must roll. There is money to be made, but wait! That pause for fun has already begun. For most of my life, collages all came together in one day. They could take hours, but I would seldom stop working on one until it was done. Usually the radio would be playing endlessly in the background -- WMMR when I lived in NJ or PA, WXRT when I lived in Chicago. For this collage, it was WXRT all the way. - dbS -
