shape party collage by laura redburn

shape party relaxed fit tee

it’s nice to actually be making collages again! i do wish to be a little more prolific, but sometimes the harder i try to make something new, the less i want to. though of course, the incentive of being paid for a commission is a big motivator, let’s be honest.

it very often happens that when spring rolls around, i do start making more work again. in the winter months, it’s like my brain just doesn’t work in the same way and something is turned off. i am determined to get more illustration work this year, which also means trying harder to make more (and better) personal work.

still do feel like i need a motivational boost though, so if you have any words of wisdom, videos, podcasts or anything that’s helped you out – do let me know.

biscect | new collages

my work by

bisect collage by laura redburn

bisect pouch

as it’s national stationery week, i couldn’t resist making a stationery themed collage. i was umming and ahh-ing a bit over what to depict, but then i looked over at my trusty scissors and the idea struck. scissors! of course. they’re my favourite tool, one which i use for (most of) my collages, so it only seemed fair to make a little homage to them.

what i made wasn’t quite how it looked in my head, i wanted to make a piece with lots of different scissors arranged in a pleasing manner, but it just didn’t look right. so, i made one simple collage with my three favourite pairs (which i then mirrored), and a pattern like piece that more closely resembles my original idea.

i feel like there’s more i can do with this, so will work on a few further pieces, but overall, pretty happy with what i’ve made here. what do you think?
