In my book Follow the Line to School that came out July 2011 I have worked with placing photographed objects in the artwork. Sometimes I went on a hunt for a specific object or sometimes I used something I had already in my files. As an example, when I needed an image of a car, I remembered the photo I had taken a while earlier of a pink Volkswagen Beetle in Sao Paolo, Brazil. Here is a little “Show and Tell” of the origin of some of the photographed images in the book.
At the end is a spread from Follow the Line Through the House. On the wall in the bedroom is a framed photograph. That picture is one of my favorite photographs from my childhood. It’s my twin brother and I on vacation in Torremolinos, Spain, in 1968. I still remember how much I loved that dress and how proud I was to show off that the lining of the jacket has the same fabric as the dress. Tres chic!
