I Heart Illustrations!


Recently, I have been interested in "Collage Mixed Media" projects - A few days ago I created a collage with all the things I "like" such as a camera, flowers, crafting supplies, books etc - This photo shows a collage I started this evening - Some illustrations that recently caught my eye - Even though they seem a bit "Child-Like", I still like the whimsy of animals, objects etc displayed in this cartoon-like way... Is there something you like - Even if it may seem a bit child-like? A certain stuffed animal? A Christmas Special that you just cannot miss? A childhood game that puts a smile on your face when you see a youngster playing it?

  1. ...but "childlike" is a part of who we are. Otherwise we wouldn't have become grownups who love art. :) I like it! Collages have become such a big part of the art community now. I think you're onto something there.

  2. ... Thanks Seedp ... I appreciate your comments ... You made me feel better about being "child-like" ... Yes, Collages have sparked my interest for awhile, and I am truly a beginner and I want to see where this takes me ...

  3. How did I miss this one? I love this collage! It brings happy thoughts! I just love all the parts of it - books, animals, connecting with people, camera, everything you love. You definitely tease me with this idea. Maybe I will try it. :)
    I do act like a child often, and always sigh when I see stuffed animals, especially bears! I always want to buy one, but then I remember how old/young I am :)))

  5. Thank you, Sonja - I just found these illustrations over the past few weeks online and I decided to make a collage out of them - Love the illustration/cartoon feel of them - I am a real kid at heart - I happen to LOVE stuffed animals - I also love bears, frogs, ragdolls etc ... Anything that has that feeling of home - Oh and by the way - We are NEVER too old for stuffed animals :)

  7. I love making collages! I think they are so therapeutic and relaxing. Every time my boy and I play Battleship or Connect 4, I am totally reminded of my childhood days!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Being published in Artful Blogging is a dream come true. It's been such an amazing creative journey!
