I’ve been having a look back through some old sketchbooks (circa 2007 ish) to find my collection of animals. I remember that I was simplifying and stylising shapes to create quirky animals and looking at them again I thought they would make lovely collages.
Diving into my stash of painted papers – mainly newspaper but also junk mail and scrap paper painted with acrylic paint, I found some yellows and browns that I thought could be ‘lioney’ and set to work snipping!
And very quickly this little chap appeared!
and then this one….
I just love how each character emerges before my eyes!
