A Dabble With Fan Art . . .

Greetings, Dear Friends of The Tearoom!
As many of you may already know, music is an important part of our lives!  Mr. V and I met in a record store in 1984 and ended up working together there.  We love listening to all kinds of music!

Today, I'm making a collage just for fun, inspired by one of my favorite albums so far this year "The Velvet Trail" by Marc Almond.  There are so many great songs on this album!  One of the ones I loved the most is "Pleasure's Wherever You Are".  I really love the visual imagery of it and it inspired me to create a piece of fan art for it!  I do hope Marc does not mind being portrayed as The Dragon Boy!

(Please click on any of the images to see them larger.)

Images used in my collages today are from the following sources:

Image one: Background revised from an image from the extensive public domain collection at The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

Image two: Background from itKuPiLLi Imagenarium on Mischief Circus
Image of Marc Almond from his Twitter site
Dragon image composed of several vintage images from The Rijksmuseum collection
Geisha adapted from a vintage image from Pinterest

Image three: Background made of decayed vintage daguerreotypes from The Public Domain Review.


  1. I have the strangest feeling he is going to be biting her neck!

    1. Tee-Hee! I would think that Marc would have other things to do, but since his transition to The Dragon Boy, who knows?

      Frankly, I was a bit nervous about making this and I didn't post it for a few days. But Marc re-tweeted it, so he must have thought it was OK after all!

      As always, thanks for your feedback, Bill!



I am so very happy to read your comments!
