And I say 'attempt' because so many of us struggle to "get it".
No one seems to be able to put it into words, exactly, myself included.
It seems to be a state of mind. Sometimes I can get there and sometimes I can't.
What I do know (I think):
- There are often pointy hats, stripey legs and strange faces with mismatched eys.
- There are lots of black and white stripes in borders and other places.
- Backgrounds are usually painted and textured.
- It IS collage work, usually, along with hand drawn and stamped images and backgrounds ... sometimes.
- Clown noses appear pretty frequently and bodies and heads are usually very mismatched.
- Magazine cut outs are commonly used along with other kinds of materials.
So..... Does that help? No. I thought not.
Teesha Moore is the person who "invented" as an art form/style, and you can see some of her work Here. She's the queen.
There is a Flickr Group called Zettiology, and I've installed our hot-button in the sidebar to your right. It looks like this.
It was created by the group admin, Jade Adams, a true Zetti guru.
You can go there and see what others of us are doing with varying degrees of success.
Oh, and thanks for asking.
