Illustration Friday - Backwards

This is what I came up with the idea of 'backwards' – I know it is a little too subtle only the writing strip is backward inlaid. I began this piece 2 nights ago which I sketched one of the window displays [picture foreground] inside the mall. I have fun to study the lighting, drapery and the style of clothing and manikin. Last night I had a wonderful time to put it together as a collage on my journal, cut pieces draw some pieces and put it together. I like collage too much and always have fun with it. I like to make the piece rich and imply the content. I got too many stamps from different countries, so I think they are good media for symbols and textures for my work. Lately, I found my work becomes more and more iconic. Don't know it is good or bad – as long as I enjoy doing it. Anyway, give me some comments that helps me create more works to share with you. Thanks a lot. Happy Holiday to all of you.

i think there is a lot of content of backwards here--all of it like a reflection, a detailed image of a memory or a time behind you... its got great texture and layers.
Hi:) Thanks for your comment.
I like this. I see you challenging yourself, this IF being a different style than some of the other IFs you did (I liked those as well). I find challenging oneself is always a good - and a little bit brave - thing to do:)) So I too say Keep it up:)

I like this - especially the coherence/echo between the faces and figure.
