Collage Obsession: Share

This was a difficult theme for me to illustrate. How do you show the concept of "sharing?" Then I came upon this image of three polar bears sharing a seesaw (from a vintage circus poster).  If one of them decided to jump off, it would upset the balance of the others. Who knew polar bears could be so considerate? They're even sharing the spotlight!

Sherry, your image is so funny and pretty, and it does make a statement at the same time - we should share our (work)loads with our friends.

Wonderful interpretation Sherry! That must be one STRONG see-saw!

I guess it matters which two jump off. This is a fun piece!

Hi I know this is random and all, but I love this concept and the look of it to boot.. I was wondering if you would be interested in either doing the cover/ or allowing me to use the concept for an album I am making called 'Pandemonium See-saw'.. This isn't a joke I am based in England and have been working on it for a while now..If you click my URL you will find my latest track Dali - it's gonna go on this album too.. My email is bettertoburnout@yahoo.com I look forward to hearing from you.. Kind regards, Craigus
