Remix Card: "Subtle Switcheroo"

Take an assignment and alter it very slightly. Make one small change or multiple changes. Just make sure they aren't too obvious. Think about those "side-by-side photos in magazines, can you spot the 10 differences between the two?" type deal. Think about letting your audience know how many changes there are so they can look for them all. You'd be amazed at what people notice and what they subconsciously choose to overlook!

fat cats

Fat cats make art better. I’d never thought of that, but I wish I had. My in-laws have a cat they call Fatty. She looks like swallowed a football helmet. The photos they sent don’t do her justice. Since her proportions are surreal, I thought of Magritte:
