poor cock robin
As you known, I often tear up nursery rhyme books to create my animal collages as these old fashioned poems quite often have fauna references. I am working on a rooster right now and have found plenty of cock-a-doodle and fine hen limericks.
I have to tell you though, I have found these old books to be full of violence! Between the rhymes and Wile E. Coyote dropping that anvil on the Road Runner's head... it's amazing we turned out as well as we did. And how about Tom and Jerry? Geez!
I often suggest to my students that they try putting text in collages upside down when it's not related to the subject matter, or they do not want it to be read and processed by the viewer. Be careful not to include the obituaries or police log in your work, too.
As for Cock Robin, may he rest in peace.
And I think I would not even include him upside down.
