I snapped this photo watching “Better Call Saul” the other night. Our beloved cat, Ms. Karen Lillibridge Govoni is hanging with my husband, Jeff. When I looked at all of the textures in this image it looked like a renaissance portrait to me.
I liked how it was so layered—Karen’s paw hanging, Jeff’s stripey socks, my crow painting, the $10/10-year-old blanket from the airport in Vegas, the industrial lamp and the stack of books (Willa Cather’s My Antonia is the white jacket in the middle). I took this on my iphone 5S. My family has new iphones and I don’t. I’m not too bitter about giving up my upgrade, that’s what Moms do, right? I think I only have to wait until 2019.
When I started playing with this photo in Adobe illustrator I wished that I could shift perspectives on how I see things in the world as easily as I can manipulate them by using design software.
Here’s to new perspectives, folks.
However you can manifest them in your world.
This is the original shot.
