An Oldie

Here's a change of pace - one of my favorites of an old editorial style, this one was done for the Fort Worth paper, an article about tinnitus. William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy got permanent tinnitus in adjacent ears when a particularly loud squib went off as they were hiding on either side of a styrofoam rock.

Excellent image to illustrate tinnitus. The hearing seems to escape the ears in soaring manner.

Oscar Woodruff said...

Excellent. Very successful distortion utilized for the caricatures.

Eva said...

Very good illustration! This is how I got mine.

ArtSparker said...

Eva- Do you mean you did illustrations using a smiliar technique (ie, digital cutting and pasting)?

Hey Susan, I thought you might be interested in my friend’s work just because it’s very similar, visually, to a lot of yours. Yet, it’s a different process altogether.

Go to work, then ‘ILST - Never Alone’ and the arrow on the right to scroll through.

Thank you, Ben. I enjoyed looking at this whimsical work.

Hi Susan, It's great to reminisce on style, yes?
thanks for you thoughtful comment over at my place. I believe there is an aesthetic difference in essence art and personality art. -J

Anything Trekky makes me smile.

Eva said...

No. How I got my tinnitus.

ArtSparker said...

Eva - Heh.

Fresca said...

My boys!
Squeeeeeeeal of delight!
May I post this on my blog? Pretty please?

Fresca said...

P.S. It could also almost illustrate vertigo, which I've been experiencing, and which is, as you know, an inner ear thing.
(Luckily no tinnitus with mine.)

mister jeffrey and I were going to dress up as people from star trek and I was going to make the costumes.


lovely piece.
you should consider doing more collage-like work, perhaps??

femminismo said...

Oh, odd. I have tinnitus also. Hearing loss, noise and vertigo. The whole ball of Meniere's syndrome. It's awful, isn't it Eva? Good illustration for this. I've always wanted to do those cut and paste pics. They look like fun.

Fresca - Sure, you can publish on your blog. I thought of this and decided to show it here after discovering your blog.
