I feel too, that the lack of color demands more of Leoplodo's work. Relying more on line and value, his characters have to fight and at the same time work harmoniously with the positive and negative areas of the composition in order to bring together a compelling narrative that hits home immediately. Why the need for such rapid uptake? Because these images are mass produced, they need to be attention grabbing, hard hitting, and meaningful. In that sense, Leopoldo is firing on all six(cylinders).
First Comes the image and then the text. While the text was of paramount importance with these revolutionary images, I am still at a loss when I am confronted by incorporating text into my pieces. Whether it be a subscript on the print itself or presented on a separate page as a book I feel like for my work, the text would compete too much with the imagery. Furthermore, while I do want the viewer to understand, and or, see the narrative behind my work, I don't want it to come easily and with the same immediacy that Leoplodo's work does. I want the viewer to stick around and keep reading into the work.
