i’m just going to take a personal moment to ‘woohoo’ that i am finally on a proper collage making roll again. woohoo! long may it last.
i’m not the kind of person that’s incredibly prolific, and in this ‘more more more now now now’ world i’m glad i don’t let myself succumb to pressure or guilt that i should constantly be churning out work. of course you should always push yourself when you can, and you should work hard and have passion for what you do, but that doesn’t always equate to constant creation. it’s not possible for everyone, and even prolific creatives are (more) prone to burn out from time to time. read this post

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
