life orientation

I've been working with collages quite a lot the last couple of years, mostly for educational illustrations and covers. This is the largest one I did, for the interior of a Life Orientation book, the concept was to have 4 illustrations that could fit into one greater whole. 

So this is in fact the entire piece, if you chop it up into quarters each would have been a separate entity in the printed book (though the bottom pieces were rotated to look "upright") . 
The subject lends itself very well to the medium and I was able to quite literally throw the kitchen sink in there!

Imagination... how else are you ever going to get the chance to ride the fabled Lionosaurus?!

This is in fact the original version of the pic in this post... not sure which one I like best... which one do you like?

spring's sprout

Well it's official, after a beautifully mild sunny day (and only 5 days late), spring has arrived!

So, to celebrate, here's a little sprout...

(and is that the shadow of winter looming in the back?)

Thanks for visiting!
