NANCY COME OUT AND PLAY WITH ME
Appropriated comic strip blown up, re-colored (pens, markers) and cut out. Original background cut out and replaced with Magritte clouds. Mounted on paper with an adapted B&W French graphic "Jouez avec moi-- Play with me" and framed in black. This was then put on an adapted page from a 1930's French alphabet book. The final piece is 7x5.
Nancy is a character drawn by Ernie Bushmiller. She was introduced in 1933. Her best friend Sluggo Smith, who is from the wrong of town, came along in 1938 much to the distress of Nancy's snobby Aunt. Joe Brainard's wonderful work made me do it.
