Dandy Lions

    Julia McLaurin

Photographic collage is a cross breed of two art forms. Its a fusing of two very different worlds to bring the viewer new and never seen before concepts. It allows for infinite possibilities. Humor has always been an important part of my work. Today's world can be such a dark and serious place. I strive to create whimsical, fancy images. In the series 'Dandy Lions", lions are portrayed in various poses as classical "dandy" gentlemen from the early 1900's. They look so suave, so majestic, so utterly dandy. The lions were such a hit I took it a step further to create fancy bears. It seems as though bears and lions were meant to wear the best suits.
