I wonder if any of these links are of interest, Sarah-Jane.

Clive, thank you so much. These are very interesting - I can't use them in the image, although I'd love to (copyright is tricky, and I'm very careful - although your map image has a cc licence it also requires attribution and eds find that tricky).

But I do think I might usefully source a non-copyright map and use that in the image. Mostly also people let me use things when I show them where they're going if I have time to write and ask.

I like the thought that this image might grow beyond a fleeting pun/conceit & re-imagining of a fashion mag towards something with more provenance, using sources carefully.

Your signposting these to me is really lovely and I appreciate very much.

Hi SJC,

I like it! It does seem uncluttered and I like her glowing dress. Not sure she needs the mask though, he says topically.
Very best with your PhD! A slog that only works if we love the material. 🙂

Cheers,
John

Thank you. I'm dying on my arse with the PhD, but I will finish it. I struggle with words (I know that sounds crazy for someone on a poetry forum, but I really do).

But, onwards, regardless, and I made my 2k today.

The main thing may be to churn it out. You can finesse your language post hoc.

It is a beautiful idea of fusing a painting with a poem. Never seen this before.

Thank you Ramya,

I am very pleased that you are participating in discussion - thank you!

What can also be helpful is if you say what works well for you and what works least well about the images you comment on. Or describe why you think something works when you find it appealing as a soft way to start.

Regardless of what stage people are on their creative journeys, in my opinion it's always good to learn and benefit from honest peer critique.

As many artists have said (including possibly Michelangelo at 87), we're always learning, and peer critique can help us 'make glorious amazing mistakes', as Neil Gaiman certainly said.

Anyway, this is an old thread so it needs to slide, but thank you for responding, and I look forward to reading you critique other posts on the board!

Sarah-Jane
