For the past couple of weeks I’ve been getting increasingly bored of my website front page image. I can never seem to find one that I think fits perfectly so I end up changing it every so often. Today I was feeling like playing around in photoshop and after seeing an images that inspired me on tumblr, I went ahead to create a notice board type collage of inspirational items and artwork that is used in my products and branding.
It features two model images, the first in the top left corner is by Toria Brightside and the second by Jennifer Byron. The other two photos were taken from my university look book. A few of the insects are from stock photos I found online and the vectors were created by me for various projects.
I haven’t made anything like this for a while and thoroughly enjoyed it, I think I need to make room for more not-strickly-work-related art projects in my life. They help to keep my work on track and inspired. One of my greatest fears is waking up in an other couple of years and realising I’ve become one of these people who just make stuff because its their job and don’t have any creative vision beyond what will sell to boring sheep-like individuals.
I also bought an overlocker today so I look forward to starting my leggings collection as soon as I have chosen the appropriate fabrics!
