Not that long ago I made a complete series (out of 30 collages) of human relationships called "Homestories": All collages are a mix of three pieces: German interiors of the 30th, Indian painted movie posters and film stills of the 40th. Because it´s a "young" series and it fit´s so well to the theme, I´m going to show one of them.

I have a Belgian friend who has a keen interest in collage, so I asked her to suggest my last theme for the month. (September will be in the inspired hands of Lynn Skordal.) She said, "Sexual identity, gender roles, relationships between men and women..." I'll broaden it a bit to include female-female and male-male relationships as well. Have fun, y'all, and thanks for all the great collages this past month!

I found this instrumental track on YouTube. 1967 studio outtake.

This poor little spotted boxfish was minding his own business, drifting calmly in orbit around Mercury. Suddenly, a bright pink spacetime anomaly appeared out of nowhere: the fish had no choice but to swim right through it. We don't yet know if he'll survive this frightful encounter!

This was a popular theme back in the days of Scrapiteria, but I don't believe we've ever done it on the KK. You know the list: fish, whales, shrimp, octopus, jellyfish, crabs, seals, and so on. However you want to include one or more of them...go for it!

Snake drawing by Albertus Seba. Speech balloon from 1951 issue of Crime Smashers comics. "Yira 2" giant lizard toy by Go Hero (Steve Forde). "A for Awesome!" sticker from StickerBomb's alphabet book. I couldn't find a photo credit for the guy in the swimsuit.

I want to get us started on the toys theme, so this is a postcard I made for a mother of triplets in Thailand. Somehow Thai woman plus triplets made me think of a traditional Thai dancer in the act of juggling three things, in this case juggling clubs. Surrounding the dancer is red colored pencil. The background text is a bunch of spliced-together quotations about parenting triplets.
I'm afraid I don't think very highly of this collage from an aesthetic point of view, but it's like the third one I ever made, so I guess I should cut myself a break.

Ok friends, the original titel from the foreground image is "Dame bei der Toilette" and it is from the school of Fontainebleue, end of the 16th century. Couldn´t fiend a translation and can´t believe that it means "Lady doing the toilette"?!?! Please let me know!!!!!!
Nevertheless here´s my entry to Fi´s theme of the week.
"Alas, Poor Yorick!" The actor playing Hamlet is a Leaellynasaura: it lived in regions that got cold enough for snow, so it had a coat of downy feathers over much of its body. The theropods that ate it (forelimb in upper right) were similarly equipped for the cold. The costume is the one that Sarah Bernhardt wore when she played Hamlet in 1899.
It apparently makes no difference whether you say that dinosaurs were primitive birds, or that birds are modern dinosaurs. Today all birds are classified in Dinosauria, a subset of Reptilia.

On emerging from their time machine, the Fab Four are greeted by camera-wielding archosaurs (genus Effigia). But don't worry: these sleek, intelligent, fast-moving crocodilians, who run on their hind legs, won't be attacking the Beatles. They don't even have any teeth—just a keratin plate in their jaw and a beak, perfect for cracking seeds, grinding nuts, and possibly killing small vertebrates.
