Tagline Roulette - Volume I, Edition 14 - "Black"

I have a list of words, currently numbered at 114, and each week I go to an online random number generator to get...(Wait for it!)...a  randomly generated number! I use this number to point me to the tag word that I'll use to search for images by Etsy POE Team members that will populate that week's feature.

This week that word turned out to be "Black" which produced a whopping 79 pages, over 3000 listings to choose from!  My target is to put together a collection of 10 images or so, but how can one be expected to glean a mere 10 images from a population in excess of 300 times that number?  

The first thing I decided to do was to focus on the work of artists whose images have rarely, if ever been featured on my blog.  My second criteria was fatigue.  I looked at images until I got tired, which means I screened over 800 images to end up with a final grouping of 15.  With appologies to the artists that produced the more than 2,200 images left unscreened, I encourage you to take a look at this collection; I hope you enjoy the images as much as I have!

Oh, and as always, please feel free to send me your word suggestions; the list is by no means limited to 114.
