About the Image(s)

December has been very busy with holidays and us selling our house. So this entry is a simple one.

Our supermarket had a big sale on canned soups. So I stacked them all up on a shelf and decided there had to be a somewhat funny image there. The cooks are from my travel files. Using layer mask I placed the cooks on top of the soup cans and made them somewhat transparent.

Happy New Year everyone.

Aavo, It may be a "simple one "but it is very successful. Even in the small icon I could tell you are on to something. This kind of idea is worth spending more time developing and trying other versions as it is very powerful.   Posted: 01/09/2022 11:56:22

I think this image really works. Distorting the cans makes them feel like graphic elements, so much more than just cans. There's a sense of movement with the orientation of the labels being a bit random rather than all exactly facing the viewer.
I like your addition of the chefs, especially the one on the right. I like the way his hand comes in front of the next column of cans and then the knife slices down to the soup below.
I agree with Brad, it would be great to see variations on this theme.

Happy new year, Aavo!
