Zetti accordion collage

 The term zetti is a bit hard to explain. I always felt that it was a random style of artwork, that was random but meaningful to you. Now it seems to be getting more characterised by brightly coloured images of people with stripy/spotty arms and legs. Throw in some wings and a couple of hats, stamped images and paint effects. Stir in some quotes and leave to simmer with Beeswax for a short while, and Voila..!! a piece to be proud of.
