I thought I’d challenge myself to do some magazine/newspaper collage; not something I usually do. It’s fun, it challenges image making creativity and narrative, loosens you up and stops you getting precious about what you are making. I cut some images I liked from a free magazine I picked up in the week and played around with them until I came up with an idea; a few extra decorative paper cuts, a bit of drawing, and a Photoshop background later and here we are – ‘Seeing the Sights’. Now I never would have invented this image without the collage play. Silly isn’t it!
