My imaginary Boyfriend

Collage by iHanna: My imaginary Boyfriend - Copyright Hanna Andersson

My imaginary boyfriend, original art collage. Available. Sold.

I found this Swedish guy in a vintage book with lots of head shots of serious looking men. I think he is darling cute, with his big ears and his hair combed back with some grease. He is trying to look like a grown up even though he feels like a child on the inside still.

I decided to do a series of collages with this guy, and call him my pretend boyfriend, or my imaginary boyfriend. I’m not sure I need one, but if I did he might look like this guy… The text reads; Today my pretend boyfriend told me I don’t need to pretend any more. I bet he would say nice things all day long, and stroke my hair until I fell asleep at night.

Square collage 13×13 centimeters (5×5″), in the same series as Greetings from the forest.

Him again:

    Oh, how I love this, Hanna! :-)
    It reminds me a little of when I was a teenager and write down all the things I wanted in a boy. :-p
    It’s funny that your signature is in the “Approved by”. Love this! :-)

    Thanks for commenting!

    Fanie, to have an imaginary boyfriend is probably a bit juvenile but also childish fun! ;-)

    Aly B, thank you too, all my favorite colours in this one. :-)

    I like the idea of having a pretend boyfriend, then you don’t really have to keep him happy! This is great. xox Corrine

    He looks like he might be cranky?

    I have an imaginary boyfriend who does a lot of charity work and movies and looks a lot like George Clooney.

    it?s very wonderful!

    n?r jag jobbade p? Myrorna p? S?der, s? kom det in en man, och han s?g ut ungef?r som din l?tsaspojkv?n – j?ttetjusig! och till sitt stiliga friserade huvud hade han snickarkl?der, och det var n?nting med den brytningen som gjorde att det blev s? himla snyggt. den karlen fastnade i mitt minne!

    this is just
    way to
    pitter-patter heart
    into full color
    (& getting your hair
    stroked at night!
