I've been having fun cutting up circa early 1930s issues of The Saturday Evening Post magazine. The background is from a double page ad for The Ford Motor Company. The handsome farmer was a cover illustration. The depressed looking cigar smoker is from an ad for "smoker's fag" which was described as a lack of energy due to smoking too much. Campbell's soup must have been a very popular convenience food as full page ads appeared in every issue. I added a "shoestring" a black marker line connecting the tin cans as a communication device.
