I've started a collabarative project with my good friend and fellow illustrator Lizzie. We met at college in Camberwell but now she has abandoned the northern hemisphere for the sunnier climes of her homeland, Australia. It's all very sad here in London without her (sniff), but thanks to the wonders of modern technology we can continue work together in a cross-continental collaborative way (yah!).
Wemakegreatthings is the title of our joint blog. We picked the name because we both have a strong craft element to our work and we share an appreciation for hand-made processes. We both approach illustration in a mixed-media kind of way, employing lots of different techniques including print-making, collage, sewing and (more in Lizzie's case) 3d elements.
I'm really excited about our collaboration!
