I must meet this person. Or at least the fellow who commented “Looks like someone has been huntin’ ” Heh.
I like odd little collections. The details make my retinas sing. I don’t think I’d need a kid to buy those beautiful “I Spy” books. They make me want to search my boxes of little collections and compose pictures.
I like adore the “I Spy” books blend of novelty and repetition–picture theme is represented, say a city scene, and elements are composed from a mish-mash of materials. The cohesion of the piece is pulled together largely through color choice.
I’d love to rearrange Tyoma’s toys by color palette-a box of primaries, split complements and analogous colors. Whooo!
