These pieces are not your typical pop artworks (like Warhol or Lichtenstein) but i think they're pop nonetheless... i'm kinda stuck on a whole Peter Blake childhood toy vibe Tongue
hope you like them..

Very nice!

I like the second one. The two soldiers standing by the pool look like they're plotting an attack...That poor pool will never know what hit it.

That's definitely pop art!  And good pop art at that.  I especially like the framed toy foods.  They make me giggle.  I can't tell if they are attached to the surface of the backing material or set into it a little.  Willing to share?

MistressT> well... i think i just superglued them onto the backing Tongue
it might just be the shadow that makes them look a lil more impressive Tongue

I definitely approve of the Peter Blake reference. Plus these are really stylish, well done. Where d'you find your miniatures?

Cassette> I know! i lurve PB, my tutor at uni is a huge pop art theortician- u heard of Pauline Boty at all? I love her works!!
hum... i got the fake tins in a charity shop... the scrabble pieces ditto.. the swimming pool was from a model railway shop that was  closing down and the lil men, nasties i think, were swiped from my dad's modelling drawer  Tongue (shh! Wink )
Decibel> well at the moment they're pilled up in thecraft room as we're in the process of moving.
but i think i might have a wall of art in my new room- they'll keep my marilyn company
 
really really happy you like them!!
now if only i'd done this sort of thing for A level art i might have done better than a C!  Undecided

funnily enough, I discovered Blake really when I found a poster of one of his works, mildly screwed up in a recycling bag.

and thanks - I looked up Pauline Boty - having never encountered her name before - and one of the first pictures I came across was this (I daren't borrow it directly off the site, a clickable link should be okay):
http://colinrobinson.com/BotyImages/11,996_15A.jpg
she looks wonderful! and "The Only Blonde In The World" is a stunner.

It could be nice to do some pieces inspired by her... Smiley

she was the utterly coolest female pop artist (she died quite young sadly) and very few of her works are ever on show-
i totally know what you mean about her works! (art historian comes out of me now  Wink ) she had a female perspective on pop culture that you don't see anywhere else!
yeah i'd love to do something around her- so far i've only done a teeny version of 'TOBITW'
