Tracy Thomas ~ Sewer Diver

This is hilarious. One thing I really like about Tracy’s collage work, and I can’t stress the importance of this enough, is the high level of craftsmanship she puts into her images. They are always wonderfully conceived and beautifully executed.

Everything is right about this image. The baby puke green tint on the floor, toilet, and wall. The mottled tiles. The highlights on the toilet seat and lid. The application of grain to the image. I’m sure she did a lot of clean-up on the image before taking it into the latter stages. The borg is perfect: the scalloped aquamarine bathing cap, the chrome snorkel suggesting plumbing pipes, the gaping mouth and the diffuse glow.

And, of course, the coup de grâce: the goldfish swimming in the goggles’ right eyepiece.
