A lovely idea, well executed. I not sure this would look right in b&w, as the warmth is an integral part of the message.

Congratulations on the HC! Well deserved. A truly excellent piece of work. I love the selective colouring and the toning as well as the montage work and the whole idea.
I'm a printer and back in the 1960s I used to hand-set type out of the case, but I never, ever saw one of these in a case of type . . . dammit!

Woo hoo! Congrats on the HC Jo! Just remember we were rootin' you on before you became rich and famous...

This is an amazing manip! Reminds me of a Columbo episode, where the body was in the wall. Columbo called the victim's pager and they followed the sound of the beeping....

message said 'Gotcha!'

I like the fact that the figure crosses the lines, after all we never, or shouldn't fit into a box. The chosen objects are interesting too. Are the representative of anything ? Looking forwrd to a mono version cropped but the tones work really well in this too.

There's a lot of thought gone into this one (and the next) and it shows! Love the colours and the concept in this one but I feel that the figure doesn't quite sit right with the 'boxes' because of the bisection by the walls IMHO.
