Zetti - Digital Collage

Print Available

"We all have an idea of what Zetti art is..."

...actually, I don't. Or, at least I didn't until I started my search...
I was truly baffled as to what Zetti art is.
I hit up google, wikimedia, searched art blogs and I hadn't the faintest idea of what the true definition is or what it is, exactly.

I did find a Zettiology group on Flickr's site that helped give me an idea of art styles that falls within this category,
but I still wasn't quite sure about the definition.

Nonetheless, a challenge is a challenge, and as baffled as I was I still gave it a shot for The Three Muses weekly challenge.

Topic “Zlightly Zetti”

So here's my piece - based only on the quick sneak peak description,
all the stripes and checkers I saw, and what I gathered from my searches.
Hopefully my piece falls within the category. :-)

  1. Very interesting piece. I enjoy the contrast of new age and old, as well as a little animation style. I was wondering what you were inspired by when you made this piece?

  2. Not really sure what I was inspired by exactly.

    I started off creating a little girl, tried to follow in the footsteps of other images I saw in creating her scene...I ended up getting bored with her. Actually, kind of gave up and let it sit for a couple days while I gave it more thought.

    I was half asleep when I envisioned this piece and once I started I just kept going until I was satisfied with the scene. :-)

  3. Wow this is stunning.
    Very impressive design. Love them.

  4. Zetti and surreal and a masterpiece all at the same time Leila, it's fun, and clever and MUST be seen close up to appreciate the lively humour in there. Fan. Tas. Tic.

  5. Oh, Leila, what fun you must have had once you got started!! This is full of color and humor, and pure creativity. Thanks so much for playing along!!

  6. Wow what a fun and quirky toilet seen :) brilliantly creative!!


  7. Leila, I don't know how your mind works but I am just glad that it does (work). Your picture really has to be enlarged to see all the details which are so whimsical, clever and funny. I think a first for me is seeing their "seats" which, if I am not mistaken, are toilet bowls with zebra legs!! Your Zetti ladies are gorgeous.
    Thanks so much for joining in this week's challenge.

  8. @ Ozstuff - Your comment had me crackin up, lol. Honestly, I don't know why my mind goes in such odd directions, but every now and then it does and I have fun re-creating my thoughts.

    Glad everyone enjoyed my piece, thank you so much for your lovely comments!

  9. Yes, it is truly Zetti-With-Class! I love it. It really gives me a whole new perspective on what CAN be done with Zetti. I think it's just fabulous! You've definitely broadened the field and raised the bar!


Thank you so much for your comment!
