ava collage by laura redburn

last week when i was preparing to put a photo on my instagram for my petplan blog post, i realised in the moment i wanted to share something a little different. and then i thought – yes! a collage! – as you may know this year i have really been struggling creatively. i’ve made a couple things here and there, but overall my creative spark just totally fizzled. this happened to me a few years ago actually. for almost a whole year my creativity was totally kaput. i tried making things but i hated them, or i just couldn’t get in the flow. i didn’t pressure myself too much, but it did eventually come back. and (hopefully!) it seems to be coming back again now.

caboodle magazine illustration by laura redburn

a little while ago, i had the pleasure of contributing to caboodle magazine again. if you remember, i had done so before in their 4th issue. this time it was illustrating an article about men (more specifically justin bieber) judging women who love themselves more than them. self love and being happy in yourself is such a big and important thing. it’s not easy and it takes lhard work. there are definitely men out there that want women to be ‘theirs’ and that’s not the behaviour of someone that respects you.

collaged tangram alphabet by laura redburn

in a bit of a spur of the moment type situation, i recently decided to make something i’ve wanted to make for years. a collaged tangram alphabet! i’m obsessed with alphabet books (i collect some) and pretty much anything alphabet related so this one really has been a long time coming. it was so fun to make and definitely fits my style very well i think. i’m actually in the progress of making another alphabet related thing, but i have bigger plans for that.
