recently i was asked to create a collage for curioos’s NYC skyline series. at the time i was feeling a little uninspired, but knew a little challenge like this would get the creative juices flowing again. or, at least for a while anyway, but that’s another story.
anyway, i had an image flash into my head of a woman dominating the skyline (no, not in that way) and a composition that was quite minimal and slightly fashion based. so, like most of my collages then! in fear of this image disappearing and losing my mojo, i quickly got to making. read this post

a while ago i got an email inviting me to design a card as part of a competition/kickstarter for playing arts. as a rule, i don’t normally enter illustration/design competitions as i don’t really agree with them, but every now and then it’s fun to and/or what you’d have to make is quick and simple. read this post

i love when ideas and collages come together quickly and easily. it’s rare for me but always welcomed!
my pal lottie asked me to make a collage for her blog, for a post on the recent BFG film (which i still haven’t seen!) and dreams in general. well, i love sleeping and dreaming, and i also love the idea of making something visual of it. ironically i feel like this collage has been ‘in my head’ for ages now, and i needed a brief from someone to make it tangible. read this post

i looked at the words graphique fantastique for so long that they don’t even look like real words anymore. weird!
anyway, a while ago i put a shoutout on twitter for anyone that wanted me to collage a photo of them. natasha was the first to reply, so on i went! i often feel torn whether to stick with my minimal style, or make something a little more detailed, and i think i got a good mix of the two here. i thought the textured, slightly patterned background gave a little more depth to the collage and of course i couldn’t resist some triangles. read this post
